Detailed Description

These images show a large fire burning in August of 2019 at the tri-border area connecting Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay. These images were captured 16 days apart by Landsat 8. The false color composites highlight fires and fire scars by combining the satellite’s shortwave infrared, near infrared, and blue bands (6,5,2). The resulting images render burned areas in dark shades of purple and active fires in bright red-orange.
