Despite this, SEVIRI sensor detected approximately 5.7 times more fires than MODIS
during the years analyzed.
We obtained the highest fraction of matching MODIS
satellite retrievals, and in situ observations, by averaging over a spatial window of 3x3 pixels compared to a "nearest-neighbor" approach.
The sensors Thematic Mapper (TM) and Operational Land Imager (OLI) of the Landsat satellite and Linear Imaging Self Scanning (LISS-3) of the IRS satellite are widely used because of their better spatial resolution (Landsat with 30 m and IRS with 23.5 m) when compared to the MODIS
, which allows a better distinction of the terrestrial targets, as demonstrated by studies on the mapping of areas of sugarcane and other agricultural crops (Silva et al., 2010; Vieira et al., 2012; Adami et al., 2012; Zhou et al., 2015).
In our experiments, we test the proposed model on Terra and Aqua MODIS
images provided by Shen and Zhang  and the test images are shown in Figure 1.
sensor has 36 narrow spectral bands and measures in the 0.4-14.4 [micro]m range.
This information was then compared with NDVI data obtained from the MODIS
at depths sight does not contest with landsite therefore more precise co registration MODIS
and landsite are required.

In this study, we developed a high-resolution (0.1[degrees], which is approximately 10 km) statistical model to estimate historical ambient [PM.sub.2.5] concentrations in China from 2004 to 2013 using MODIS
C6 AOD data.
