Satellite Fire Detection Alert
NASA TERRA (EOS) & AQUA satellite MODIS and VIIRMS Sensors
Satellite Fire Monitoring & Alert System
for national Parks of California
Fire & thermal anomaly data may be from fire, hot smoke, crop burning, or other causes and sources.
Sequoia National Park
Yosemite National Park
Redwood National Park
Pinnacles National park
Note: MODIS active fire hotspot location is center of a 1km pixel that is flagged by the algorithm as containing one or more fires within the pixel. C Each VIIRS active fire/thermal hotspot location represents the center of a 375m pixel. MODIS & VIIRS sensors pick up significant thermal anomaly. A persistent anomaly over a forest area is identified as a forest fire.
