CWFMS
Canadian Wildland Fire Monitoring Sensor
CSA (NRCAN) (ECCC)Current: -
Future: WildFireSat
Complete: -
PrototypeImaging multi-spectral radiometers (vis/IR)Measurements are: Fire Radiative Power (FRP), hotspot locations, rate of spread, burned area mapping. Data products generated: 1) Fire maps, showing location, extent, and timing of forest fire events; 2) Fire characteristics, such as fire line intensity, rate of spread and fuel consumption; 3) Plume dynamics through smoke transport maps and plume heights; 4) Mass of carbon released into atmosphere.
Waveband:VIS: 0.6 – 0.7 μm (red) (possibly also VIS 0.4 - 0.6 μm); NIR: 0.8 – 0.9 μm; MWIR: 3.4 - 4.2 μm wavelength; TIR: 10.4 μm – 12.3 μm;
VIS, NIR, MWIR, TIR
Spatial resolution:400 m (TIR, MWIR), and 200 m (NIR, VIS) at the geodetic sub-satellite point.
Best resolution: 400 m
