Microphone Satelligence on how data analysis has tracked the Amazon fires

Niels Wielaard, co-founder and CEO of Satelligence, explains to Innovation Forum’s Ian Welsh how satellite data has been used to track the Amazon fires over the summer, and analysing the vegetation types that have been burning.

He clears up some of the confusing statements that have been spread – including that there have been more fires in other years – but stresses that this year is particularly significant because of the number of fires in a year with average rainfall. Previous high fire outbreaks have been associated with much drier conditions.
