Wildfires in Northern Australia

On May 13, 2002, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) detected numerous bushfires in northern Australia. It is still fairly early in the fire season there, and these fires may be agricultural or prescribed burns intended to lower the risk of more severe fires later in the dry season. Please note that the high-resolution scene provided here is 500 meters per pixel. For a copy of this scene at the sensors fullest resolution, visit the MODIS Rapidfire site.
