Satellite Monitoring Data Should Be Widely Available

Participants of a meeting on 24 August 2011 on monitoring and control of natural and human-induced emergency situations in the 'Rossiyskaya gazeta' press centre demonstrated that satellite imagery data has been increasingly widely used for emergencies monitoring and response. One of the technologies of thermal anomalies monitoring is the detection using images in the infra-red band of the MODIS camera of Terra/Aqua satellites. Burning areas are analysed using detailed SPOT 4/5 images, and damage to the forest as a result of fire is evaluated.
