Fires in northern South America

The following MODIS scenes show fires burning in northern South America on 17 February 2004. Red dots probably indicate land use fires, and a marked difference can be observed between the Llanos, where fire intensity is high, and the mountain regions of Guayana, where fires are clearly less.

These images were captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS).
