             abstract = "Brazil contributes as a source of greenhouse gases, aerosols and 
                         trace gases to the atmosphere, in particular, due to the 
                         continuous conversion of vegetation to pasture and agriculture 
                         land using fire practices. Although the Brazil presents huge 
                         numbers of fire events, there is a lack of studies in order to 
                         analyze the agreement among currently available burned area 
                         products, both in terms of extent and location of the areas burnt 
                         over this region. This issue is of particular interest since the 
                         accuracy of burned area maps is related to the uncertainties in 
                         the quantification of atmospheric biomass burning emissions. 
                         Accordingly, we present and analyze the results of three currently 
                         burned area (BA) products derived from MODIS data, namely AQM 
                         (INPE), MCD45A1 (NASA) and MCD64A1 (NASA). The procedure is 
                         applied to quantify the overall temporal and spatial distribution 
                         patterns of burned areas in Brazil for the period 2005 2010 and 
                         obtained patterns are compared for each Brazilian biome and 
                         related to the respective patterns of fire pixels derived from 
                         remote sensing. Results show there is a reasonable spatial 
                         agreement in the location of burned areas among the three 
                         products. However, there is a major disagreement in area extent. 
                         The AQM product presents substantially higher estimates of BA than 
                         the NASA products, being on average 5.8 and 4.4 times larger than 
                         MCD64A1 and MCD45A1, respectively. In general, AQM presents values 
                         much close to active fires than the NASA/MODIS BA products.",
