Timelapse of 2023 Fire Season

Fire Point Mapping in Alaska

This video shows a timelapse of the fire heat points detected by GINA over the course of the 2023 Alaska Fire Season from May 15, 2023 to September 5, 2023. Recent fire points are displayed as bright red and fade to brown after a few days. Fire points frequently appearing in the same location indicate an actively burning wildfire. This product doesn’t detect points that are under cloud cover or thick smoke. This product is used by the Alaska Fire Service for detecting active fires on the Alaska Wildland Fire Information Map.
