Satellite data can help Indonesia manage wildfires

Indonesia: As Indonesia grapples with its most severe forest fires in recent years, the United States has pledged a support of $2.75 million to the nation. A team of technical advisers from the US Forest Service would also go to Indonesia to assist the government with operational coordination, remote sensing and satellite imagery efforts. Satellite data can help scientists and policymakers target upwind and downwind locations to understand both the health impacts as well as the fire hotspots.
