German research cooperation looking behind Indonesia’s haze

The highlighted section shows additional fire hot spots under the Indonesian haze, using satellite imagery of TET-1 (Image: DLR).

So far, more than two million hectares of Indonesian forest area have been lost due to the forest fires that broke out on 21 June 2015. The National Space and Aviation Agency of Indonesia (LAPAN) expects losses to grow, as large forest areas and peat lands, especially in Kalimantan and Sumatra, are still affected by fires.
