Fires in Northern Australia

February 28, 2013
A straight line of fires (marked with red dots) in Australia’s “Top End” is probably the result of aerial burning, where prescribed fires are set using incendiaries dropped from aircraft. Scattered fires are spread throughout the region in this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Aqua satellite on June 19, 2003.
