Recently, frequency and strength of global wildfire are on the increase. The wildfire encourages the climate change through release of GHGs into the atmosphere over one time occur. The effect of wildfire GHGs can be estimate by FRP(fire radiative power), many research using the remote sensing are trying for its efficient produce. A satellite fire product including fire mask and FRP was produced by polar orbit satellite at first, thereafter it was expanded to geostationary satellites for continuous monitoring of wide areas. However, geostationary satellites observing in East Asia no got a standard to produce the fire product yet. This paper described a retrieval of FRP using the COMS(Communication, Ocean and Meteorological satellite) that is a Korean geostationary satellite. The COMS FRP was retrieved MIR(Middle infrared) radiance method which approaches by brightness temperature of single waveband. Our test was presented that large scale wildfires(FRP > 300MW and confidence level > 9) occurred in the each April. The COMS FRP showed MAE = 103.67 MW(16%) with the MODIS. This result represents much as possibility of the FRP in East Asia. This paper is expected to provide to baseline for the FRP in East Asia, and apply to biomass loss and estimate the GHGs. In addition, the COMS FRP will contribute to studies of aerosols, economic losses and ecosystem damages as basic data.
