Fires in Java, Indonesia

Deforestation has left little intact forest remaining on the island of Java, pictured here in a true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer image from October 19, 2002. Even the remaining forest continues to be under pressure from commercial logging and slash and burn agriculture. In this image, islands of forest appear green against the paler landscape. In nearly every patch, MODIS detected active fire (red dots).
