Oklahoma 3.9 micron Infrared Satellite

This Oklahoma satellite map depicts radiative emissions at a particular wavelength (3.9 microns) in the infrared spectrum that is very useful for detecting wildland fires (wildfires or prescribed fires). Fires appear as distinct black areas (often dots) against the usual gray background. Clouds are depicted in whites and will usually obscure any surface fires. This image is provided by the College of DuPage and is updated every 5 minutes. The time of the image is shown in UTC time (CST = UTC - 6 hours; CDT = UTC - 5 hours).
