Wildfires in Northern Australia

In northwestern Australia, fires continue to dot the landscape on May 22, 2002. Fires have been burning in this region since early April, and may be part of a planned burn program that seeks to reduce uncontrolled fire danger later in the dry season. Please note that the high-resolution scene provided here is 500 meters per pixel. For a copy of the scene at the sensors fullest resolution, visit the MODIS Rapid Response Image Gallery.
