Fires in New Guinea

April 2, 2013
Fires continued to burn across the southern part of the island of New Guinea on October 27, 2003. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite captured this image of dozens of active fires burning across both Irian Jaya (left) and Papua New Guinea (right); fires have been marked with red dots. The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters.
