NASA measured California forest temperature from space station

NASA has measured the temperature of the California wilderness using an instrument on the International Space Station.

The Space Agency’s ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station (ECOSTRESS) caused the fire, according to NASA, including the El Dorado fire near Yucaipa and the Valley fire in the Japatul Valley.

NASA said in a statement, “Both images were taken at 12:13 pm PDT (3:13 pm EDT), with multiple concentrated areas of surface temperature (in red) exceeding 375 ° F (191 ° C). Reflect. ” “There was a possibility of these high temperature areas where there was an active fire. The surface temperature (orange) of an unusually warm mid-night background appears due to an ongoing heat wave in the surrounding areas. ”

ECOSTRESS is operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
