 Acquired by PRISMA satellite (PRecursore IperSpettrale della Missione Applicativa) on 17 July 2021, false color image which includes both visible and infrared light, captured a large portion of burn scar and active areas. The vegetation appears in shades of red and bare ground in shades of tan. The burned areas appear black dark and the smoke from active fire front in blueish. The image, that covers an area of 30 by 30 Kilometers, has been acquired in the framework of the ASI project “Sviluppo di Prodotti Iperspettrali Prototipali Evoluti” whose main objective is to define the development plan for a subset of L3 / L4 value-added products to be retrieved by means of hyperspectral data processing and to prototype them. The required data are used for the development of several prototypes among which the Forest Fire Front that reports the localization of active fires, based on the ionization at flaming temperature of the Potassium contained in biomass burning.
