MISR Plume Height Climatology Product

Aerosol plume injection height retrievals for North American fire events. Uses stereoscopic imaging capability of MISR (275-m spatial resolution; 672 nm spectral band). Events are identified by MODIS thermal anomalies. MISR data are processed using the MISR INteractive eXplorer (MINX) software tool.
