MODAPS has suspended the production of the MODIS/Terra+Aqua Burned Area Monthly L3 Global 500 m SIN Grid Version 6.1 (MCD64A1) data product. It was discovered that the V6.1 code did not have a necessary correction to fix an error that caused burned grid cells on the edge of certain tiles to be reclassified as unburned. MCD64A1 will be re-processed for the entire mission once the necessary code fix has been incorporated and tested. In the meantime, production of MCD64A1 will remain on hold.
