This map illustrates satellite-detected areas of wildfires in Biskra, Batna and Khenchela provinces, Algeria from 18 August 2012. Starting in June 2012, numerous wildfires have burned pine and oak forests within northern Algeria, likely resulting from a heat wave. The wildfire scars cover an approximate area of 295 square km. The three largest scar signatures detected had ongoing fires as of 18 August 2012. This is a preliminary analysis & has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT.
