Abstract

During the last semester of 2019, Indonesia was hit by major forest and land fires in Sumatera and Kalimantan. The culprit of a large number of smokes were palm oil cultivation lands. This study uses data collected from Aqua and Terra satellite of Nasa to visualize the hotspots' severity, causing some provinces to become smoky. The severe hotspots were located on Riau, West Kalimantan, and Central Kalimantan through visualization density. The hotspots detected in this study vary from 300 to 468 degrees Fahrenheit, shown by the brightness of visualized colors on the map. This study also found that the forest and land forest fires have reached its peak during August 2019.
