The Fire Information for Resource Management System
This figure appears in the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Climate Change Science Program for Fiscal Year 2007 report.
This tool provides web-based depictions of MODIS fire products for 1 day, in this case for Namibia. This same information is transmitted by cell phone as a text message to fire wardens in protected areas alerting them to the times and locations of the detected fires. This information has proven very useful for detecting and preventing incursions into protected areas in Africa and elsewhere. Credit: D.K.
