Description:

This animation shows a unique picture of seasonal and yearly fire activity. Here, global fire activity is displayed as tiny particles on a flat map with each particle depicting the site at which a fire was detected. Daily fires are displayed at a rate of 10 days per second. The fire particles fade over 1.7 seconds and change color as they age from red to orange, yellow and grey. A clock inset shows the date.
