On the Peloponnesus Peninsula in southwestern Greece, severe wildfires burned large tracts of land late this summer (2007). Many satellite images, including Landsat images, were used to create fire maps for disaster response teams.

The Landsat 7 images above (WRS-2 Path 184 Row 34) are a composites of ETM+ bands 7, 4, and 2. Gaps in these SLC-off images were filled using the Level 1T Segment-based gap-fill method. This image was provided courtesy of USGS.
