The Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC) for biogeochemical dynamics is one of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) data centers managed by the Earth Science Data and Information System (ESDIS) Project. The ORNL DAAC archives data produced by NASA's Terrestrial Ecology Program. The DAAC provides data and information relevant to biogeochemical dynamics, ecological data, and environmental processes, critical for understanding the dynamics relating to the biological, geological, and chemical components of Earth's environment.

This data set includes data dealing with the MODIS fire maps generated from two different algorithms compared against fire maps produced by ASTER. The fire study was one of the studies used to help LBA determine how tropical forest conversion, regrowth, and selective logging can influence carbon storage, nutrient dynamics, traces gas fluxes, and the possibility for sustainable land use in Amazonia. 1995-2005.
