More forest fire activity has recently been pinpointed by VIIRS Nightfire technology. This image over Fort à La Corne, Canada depicts heat signatures from the forest inferno. These signatures are substantially hotter than those of recent fires in places like Arizona and Poland. Dense forest and intense wind have produced flames that burn at over 2,000 Kelvin. The red and yellow data points represent the signatures of some of the hottest fires that Earth Observation Group at Payne Institute for Public Policy has recorded in 2020, and with wildfire season looming in the distance such scorching temperatures may become the norm.
