Forest Fires

I cam e across a nice link posted over on the EO & RS in Ireland blog. NASA have a near-real time satellite mapping facility for forest fires and this is quite topical right now with the gorse fires in Galway after the recent unseasonal dry weather.

The satellite mapping has identified a number of hotspots around Ireland right now but when you look at the rest of the planet you start to see some countries experiencing hundreds of occurrences, such as Mexico, Guinea, India etc. Screengrab for the Congo below.
