Multisensor Fire Observations

Cindy Starr, et al, NASA Scientific Visualization Studio

This NASA video, available in MPEG-1 and -2 formats, serves as an introduction to the use of satellite imagery to monitor wildfires and their impact on the environment. The film explains how atmospheric data, land cover data, and meteorological data are used in combination to explain the genesis of fires, to monitor their movements, and to better understand wildfires as a phenomenon.
