NASA's Aqua satellite with its Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) has acquired an image in Kimberly region on 10 April 2013, Australia showing dozens of managed fires. All of the fires were south and west of the Isdell River; some were burning in and near Windjana Gorge National Park, a popular tourist destination.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terrasatellite captured this image showing large bush fires burning in southwestern Victoria on February 18, 2013. Red outlines indicate hot spots where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fires. Winds blew a long plume of smoke south toward the Bass Strait.
