  • During 1997 and 1998 intensive land irrigation and clearance activities in Indonesia, combined with a greatly extended ENSO-related dry season, created conditions for several months of forest fires. Fires were particularly intense in the lowland peatlands of Kalimantan and Sumatra where both forest and peat fires occurred. A 24,910 km (2.491 MHa) study area in Central Kalimantan has been used to investigate the consequences of fire on peat swamp forest using LANDSAT TM/ETM and ERS-1/2 radar… CONTINUE READING
