Executive editor
Fire is a pervasive feature of the Earth system, and a cause of significant carbon emissions. This manuscript presents a higher resolution fire emissions data set than previously available, thereby providing a valuable resource to the scientific community.
Short summary
We present a global fire emission model based on the GFED model framework with a spatial resolution of 500 m. The higher resolution allowed for a more detailed representation of spatial heterogeneity in fuels and emissions. Specific modules were developed to model, for example, emissions from fire-related forest loss and belowground burning. Results from the 500 m model were compared to GFED4s, showing that global emissions were relatively similar but that spatial differences were substantial.
