source_file: This product is generated from monthly 0.5 degree GFED4.0 burned area observations
title: derived GFED4 burned area fracttion
Approach: I divided the monthly area burned within each grid grid cell, original in units of 0.1 hectares, by the total area in in each land grid cell, then I converted the unit to percentage. Meanwhile, I set all grid cells in desert areas to missing. The output files were transformed to netcdf format.
Temporal resolution: monthly
General information: This product was derived from GFED4.0 dataset.
Spatial resolution: 0.5x0.5 degree
