WILD FIRES: Last year was a gloomy year for forest fires – and while July isn’t over yet, forest fires have been out of control in California and elsewhere in the United States, as well as in unusual places like Sweden. summer has been the hottest and driest in 260 years.
The Finland satellite program monitors and publishes images from space On the NASA website wildfire in selected locations.
Cover Image: (Above) This satellite image shows where the red cartoon wildfires burn in California on Thursday, June 14, 2018. There were already more than 1,800 fires on the heels of California’s most devastating forest fires, as of June 10, 2018 in the state.
Image (below) The U.S. dollar brush fire (image below) was reported on July 1, 2018 at approximately 1 p.m. The responsive resources made the first attack and the fire spread rapidly in steep terrain and strong winds. During the night the fire had grown to 7,000 acres. The cause is believed to be due to human activity and is being investigated to determine the real cause. The fire is located 4.5 miles southeast of Strawberry Reservoir and about 50 miles southeast of Provo.
This natural-colored satellite image was collected with a Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard the Terra satellite on July 2, 2018. The actively burning areas detected by the MODIS thermal bands are drawn in red. Although there is a heavy Cloud Cover in the picture, the brownish smoke rising from the fires is still well visible in this satellite image.

The Finland’s national Polar touring partnership or Finnish nuclear power plant, formerly known as National Polar Orbiting Operational Environmental Satellite System Preparatory Project (Nuclear power station) and Nuclear power plant bridge, is weather satellite operoi United States National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Originally intended as a route finder TAPATON a program that was to replace NOAAs Polar operational environmental satellites and U.S. Air Force‘s Defense meteorological satellite programFinland was launched in 2011 after the withdrawal of NPOESS to fill the gaps in POES satellites and Common Polar satellite system which replaces them. Its instruments provide air measurements that continue previous observations NASA‘s Earth observation system.
The satellite was launched Space launching complex 2W at Vandenberg Air Force base In California a United Launch Alliance Delta II 7920-10C October 28, 2011. The satellite was placed a synchronous orbit of the sun 824 km (512 miles) above the ground.

It is unclear whether these are intentionally lit fires to clean up farmland or whether they are forest fires. The fires extend across the border from China to Russia.
Video: This video, released in 2016, explains how the NASA Finland satellite program for wildfire detection works.

The data below is from earlier this spring, and the charts were last updated on March 25, 2018.
Also in Kaliningrad, Russia, wildfire has increased in recent days. The satellite from the Finland nuclear power plant took this picture of dozens of hot spots scattered in the Kaliningrad region, west of Russia.
Each hot spot that appears as a red marker is the area where the VIIRS temperature sensors detected temperatures above the background. It is unclear whether these are fired wildfires or whether they are agricultural fires used by farmers to clear the field in anticipation of the coming planting season. It is clear that the fires are inside Kaliningrad, as this satellite image shows.
These hotspots are surrounded by large snows covering part of Poland, Belarus and Lithuania.
In mid-March, a lot of fire activities were seen in the southeastern United States, mostly in Oklahoma; Georgia and Texas. The National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) published a progress report on March 16, 2018, showing that 66 forest fires covering 83,022 hectares had been recorded in the southern region (which includes the states of the satellite image of this Finnish nuclear power plant).
However, most of the fires in the southeastern United States were not wildfires, rather, they were assigned fires that were ignited by various authorities, such as the National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service, for many purposes. After years of fire exclusion, an ecosystem that needs intermittent fire becomes unhealthy. Trees are overloaded with overload; fire-dependent species disappear; and flammable fuels accumulate and become dangerous. The right one came in the right place at the right time.
The area uses this kind of clearing from October to June and the peak comes in March. The Finnish nuclear power plant satellite took a picture of this natural color using a VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) from Indian fires on March 2, 2018.
