* Nightfire data make use of six spectral bands to detect and characterizes subpixel infrared emitters. Provides locations and times of hot pixel detections along with estimates of temperatures and source sizes. For cloud-free gas flares a calculation is performed to estimate the flared gas volume in methane equivalents. Nighttime data are available on 24 hour increments. Monthly and annual cloud-free composites are in preparation.
