MONITORING ACTIVE FIRES
Identify fire fronts and track their propagation
Fire management and fire control rely on the ability to precisely detect the origin and spread of active fires. This improves the planning of fire control and helps identify ecological consequences. Satellite technology plays an important role in detecting large-scale, active fires, especially in areas difficult to access such as forests. Innovative satellite sensors, such as those from the FireBIRD mission are used to identify active fires, track the propagation of fire fronts and measure fire intensity.
