NASA satellites captures images of the California wildfires

USD 1.14 million in funding was granted to the University of Arkansas in order to create a decision support system for assessing areas at risk for mudslides or rock falls caused by the effects of wildfires. The system will be based on remote-sensing technologies.

NASA satellites capture California wildfires

The red lines indicate areas where MODIS detected fires.

In early May 20103, dry Santa Ana winds started several wildfires in Southern California, USA. NASA's Terra and Aqua satellites captured images of the fires with their Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The red lines on the picture indicate where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures indicating fires about 50 miles north of Los Angeles.
