South Australia on Fire

Each red dot on this Terra Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image is the center of a detected hotspot. This false-color image was created using MODIS bands 7 (red), 2 (blue), and 1 (green), a combination that helps distinguish burn scars from low vegetation or bare soil.

Explore Data and Imagery with NASA Worldview

The NASA Worldview data visualization application lets you overlay more than 900 data layers on top of global base map imagery dating back to February 2000. You also can compare images from different days, months, or years to interactively explore the impacts of a natural or human-caused event.
