Wild Fires

Burned area mapping with Sentinel-2

This is event is available for participation on an ongoing basis
Undefined

Out of control wildfires cause extreme long-term damage to the environment, wildlife, flora and property every year. Sentinel-2 imagery provides an accurate post-event analysis of wildfire extents since small areas can be detected and assessed, while at the same time reducing the need for ground surveys on often difficult terrain.

Active Fire Detection with Sentinel-3

Undefined

This webinar provides the basics of image processing for active fire detection. It demonstrates how to access the RUS Service and how to download, process, analyse and visualize the free data acquired by the Copernicus satellites. The ESA-SNAP Sentinel-1 Toolbox will be employed to demonstrate the methodology to map active wild fires.

NASA develops new FireSat system to detect wildfires

FireSat will consist of a network of more than 200 thermal infrared imaging sensors loaded in a network of satellites to detect wildfires (Imagery: Quadra Pi R2E).
The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, based in Pasadena, California is developing a new network of space-based sensors called FireSat in collaboration with the private company Quadra Pi R2E, which is based in San Francisco, California. The new sensors are designed to improve the detection of wildfires.  FireSat is expected to be launched by June 2018.

Indonesia: Sumatra is covered with haze from ongoing fires

satellite image of fires in Indonesia

Since February, many fires have broken out on the Sumatra peninsula in Indonesia, as UN-SPIDER reported; many of them were deliberately set in order to clean the land. Although this is illegal, it is still a common practice in the region. NASA’s satellites Terra and Aqua monitor these fires from Space.
