Worldview Image of the Week

Pipeline Fire, Arizona

Image captured on 13 June 2022 by the MODIS instrument aboard the Terra satellite.

The embedded map above shows a false-color corrected reflectance image of the Pipeline Fire north of Flagstaff, Arizona, on 13 June 2022. The fire was first reported at 10:15 a.m., MST, by a fire lookout on 12 June 2022. This image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), aboard NASA's Terra satellite. The false-color image is a false-color Red-Green-Blue (RGB) composite where Red is Band 7, Green is Band 2, and Blue is Band 1. This band combination is most useful for distinguishing burn scars from naturally low vegetation or bare soil and enhancing floods. Vegetation appears green, water is black/dark blue, burn scars are red, and the actively burning fire front is bright red.
