Fire! Remote-Sensing Activities

This page is for the use of teachers and students who are using the Event-Based Science module called Fire!. It takes you to a remote-sensing activity that will help you with the Task.
  • Fire! Activity provides Landsat images from NASA to help you evaluate the recovery of forests destroyed by the Yellowstone Fires of 1988.
If you you would like to try this activity with your students, we want to hear from you. Please print out, complete, and return an evaluation form.

YellowstoneNational Park - Soon After the Fires

Image Processing by Janet Chien, NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center

Fires in Shenandoah National Park A large smoke plume is seen streaming eastward from Virginia's Shenandoah National Park near Old Rag Mountain. This true-color image of the fire was obtained on November 1, 2000 by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA's Terra spacecraft.

Mapping Landcover and Fire Extent with Satellite Data Is part of NASA's award-winning Earth Observatory website.
