Datasets used in this visualization

  • GFED4s (Global Fire Emissions Database, Version 4.1)

    ID: 1050
    Type: Data Compilation

    This fourth version of the Global Fire Emissions Database (GFED4s) provides monthly burned area, fire carbon (C) and dry matter (DM) emissions, and the contribution of different fire types to these emissions in order to calculate trace gas and aerosol emissions using emission factors.
