This natural-color image of smoke and fires in several states within Brazil including Amazonas, Mato Grosso, and Rondônia was collected by NOAA/NASA’s Suomi NPP using the VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) instrument on August 20, 2019. It is not unusual to see fires in Brazil at this time of year due to high temperatures and low humidity. Time will tell if this year is a record breaking or just within normal limits.

NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) Worldview application provides the capability to interactively browse over 700 global, full-resolution satellite imagery layers and then download the underlying data. Many of the available imagery layers are updated within three hours of observation, essentially showing the entire Earth as it looks “right now.” Suomi NPP is managed by NASA and NOAA.

2019年8月20日,NOAA/NASA的Suomi NPP使用VIIRS(可见光红外成像辐射计套件)仪器收集了包括亚马逊州、马托格罗索州和朗多尼亚州在内的巴西几个州的烟雾和火灾的自然彩色图像。由于高温和低湿度,巴西每年这个时候发生火灾并不罕见。时间会告诉我们,今年是破纪录的一年还是仅仅在正常范围内。

A的地球观测系统数据和信息系统(EOSDIS) Worldview应用程序提供了交互浏览700多个全球全分辨率卫星图像层以及下载底层数据的功能。许多可用的图像层在观测后三小时内就会更新,基本上显示了整个地球现在的样子。“Suomi NPP由NASA和NOAA管理。
