NASA Satellite Captures Guiberson Fire's Burn Scar
Fully contained yesterday, the Guiberson Fire burned through some 17,500 acres, injuring 10, destroying one outbuilding and costing nearly $10 million.
On Sunday, the Advanced Land Imager on NASA’s Earth Observing-1 (EO-1) satellite caught this false-color image of the fire area by using "shortwave infrared light to increase the contrast between burned and unburned land."
The fluorescent green represents agricultural fields while greenish tan is natural vegetation not burned by the fire. The deep red marks the burn scar, mostly on the Santa Susana Mountains between Moorpark and Fillmore in the Santa Clara River Valley.
