内容 研究概要:Recently, big forest fires were reported in Indonesia every several years. According to the information from the Ministry of Forestry of Republic of Indonesia, the attacked areas were about 300 thousand, 162 thousand and 19 thousand hectors in 1997, 1994 and 1991, respectively. Early detection of forest fires and early attack to them are considered important for preventing such big fires and a new satellite observation system coupled with NOAA and HIMAWARI (GMS) was installed in Bogor in July 1997 by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The early detection system was developed and is being used in practical way for the project. The hot spots derived from NOAA data taken in midnight are overlayed on HIMAWARI images for observing smoke plumes and on TM with GIS information for identifying the ground conditions around the fires. Estimation of danger of fire expansion, however, is required when we have to put priorities for attacking them. Then, as the first attempt for creating a fire danger map, we studied the relations between continuity of forest fires and soil types in Sumatra. According to the observation of fires using this system in 1997, the fires on wetland forest area lasted for a long time expanding their areas. Smoke plumes from those area were also appeared veiy thick on HIMAWARI images.
