Fires in Turkey

Images captured between 27 July and 2 August 2021, by the MODIS instrument, aboard the Aqua satellite.

False color corrected reflectance animation (Bands 7-2-1) of fires in Turkey. These images were acquired by Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradometer (MODIS), aboard the Aqua satellite. These images are a false color Red-Green-Blue (RGB) composite where Red is Band 7, Green is Band 2, and Blue is Band 1. This combination is most useful for distinguishing burn scars from naturally low vegetation or bare soil and enhancing floods. Press "Play" to see fires start and spread between 27 July and 2 August 2021 along portions of the southern coast of Turkey. Fires can be seen, from right to left, near the towns of Manavgat, Marmaris, Mila and Bodrum. Zoom into the map to see more detail from each of those locations.
