  Name: ATSR World Fire Atlas
  Abbreviation: WFAA
  Description: The ATSR World Fire Atlas is the first multi-year Global Fire Atlas ever built. It contains data covering November 1996 through December 1998 and will cover the whole ERS-2 mission since 1995. The data capture continuity required for long term monitoring will be ensured by the AATSR instrument on-board ENVISAT. Each year of ATSR Fire Atlas requires the processing of 80000 images. All Hot Spots (including gas flares) with a temperature higher than 312 k at night are precisely localised (better that 1km).
