‘Resolute’ warrior burns his mark during deployment

Part of the tool kit for a pyrographer is a woodburning system shown here. The system regulates the amount of heat that enters the hot wire tool (on top).

  • <p>In South America's Amazon River Basin, the annual dry season is drawing to a close, but fires are still burning over a wide area near the Xingu National Park, a large park that acts as an indigenous peoples reserve in the rapidly changing Amazon frontier. In this scene, the green pendulum of intact rainforest in the park dominates the right edge of the scene, while fires (red dots) and smoke are spread over the whole image. Slash-and-burn deforestation continues to be a prime tool for clearing land for agriculture in the region, especially for cattle ranching and, increasingly, for soybean production. This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer  modis.gsfc.nasa.gov (MODIS)  on NASA's  terra.nasa.gov Terra  satellite on September 28, 2004. The high-resolution image provided above is 250 meters per pixel.

  • Airmen use various tools and instruction orders during a phase inspection of an A-10C Thunderbolt II, Nov. 10, at Kandahar Air Field, Afghanistan. A phase inspection is an extensive process of servicing the airframe integrity, hydraulic system and wiring systems to make sure they are compliant with standards.
  • <p>In the savannas of West Africa, thousands of fires were detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer  modis.gsfc.nasa.gov (MODIS)  on NASA's  aqua.nasa.gov Aqua  satellite on December 18, 2005. In this part of Africa, people set fires for a variety of purposes, for example, to stimulate new growth of pasture vegetation and to hunt wild game. Although intentional burning of the savannas has long been part of the region's pastoral and agricultural cultures, the fires are not without hazard. If they burn too hot, they can damage the soil and contribute to erosion and desertification, and they create air pollution, which can linger over the savannas for weeks at a time during the dry season. </p> <p>The high-resolution image provided above has a spatial resolution of 1 kilometer per pixel.

  • <p>From Brazil (image top), through Bolivia (center), and stretching southward into Argentina (bottom), scores of fires were detected by the  modis.gsfc.nasa.gov Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer  (MODIS) on NASA's  terra.nasa.gov Terra  satellite on October 1, 2002. Fire locations are marked with red dots. Right of image center, the skies are so thick with smoke that the ground is barely visible. According to news reports, a hot, windy winter is exacerbating the normal burning season. These fires are the subject of intense study in a variety of scientific disciplines -- everything from the social pressures that drive people to use fire as an agricultural tool, to the loss of biodiversity, to the impact on air quality and rainfall patterns. </p><p>Image by Jesse Allen, based on data from the  rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov MODIS Rapid Response Team  at NASA-GSFC</p>
