Greece Forest Fires

 (JPG) Greece Forest Fires (2,511,137 bytes) ( 3,758 x 4,232 )
The last major fire in southern Greece was brought under control this weekend, but not until over 469,000 acres of mostly forest and farmland were destroyed. An estimated 4000 people lost their homes, and over 60 deaths were reported. These were the worst fires ever to occur in Greece. This ASTER image was acquired September 4 over the western coast of the Peloponnesus Peninsula. In the Bands 6-3-1 composite, burned areas appear in dark red, and unburned vegetation is green. The area includes the ancient site of Olympia, the site of the Olympic Games in classical times. The fires came within a few meters of the archaeological site, but spared it. The image covers an area of 56.4 by 63.5 kilometers, and is located at 37.9 degrees North latitude, 21.6 degrees East longitude.
