Abstract

Geoscience Australia acquired a satellite image that clearly shows the effects of the fire that swept through the south-western suburbs of Canberra on 18 January 2003. The Landsat ETM+ image was acquired on 26 January 2003 at approximately 11am (AEST). The image shows land cover across the Canberra region in pseudo-natural colour (Landsat ETM+ bands 2, 4, 7 are displayed as Blue, Green, Red). The bushfire smoke can be identified as pale blue in colour. Healthy vegetation shows as green and burnt areas show as dark red-brown. The image captured on 26 January is available as a free poster from the Geoscience Australia Sales Centre.
