This animation shows fire activity over the Western US during the summer of 2002. The fires are shown as tiny particles with each particle depicting the site at which a fire was detected. Daily fires are displayed at a rate of 5 days per second. The particles fade over 3.4 seconds and change color as they age from red to orange, yellow and grey. A clock inset indicates the date.

This animation shows a unique picture of annual fire activity. Here, global fire activity between 8-21-2001 and 8-20-2002 is displayed as tiny particles on a rotating globe 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. (less)

The Lights of Earth can be seen from space. Human-made lights highlight particularly developed or populated areas of the Earths surface, including the seaboards of Europe, the eastern United States, and Japan. Many large cities are located near rivers or oceans so that they can exchange goods cheaply by boat. Particularly dark areas include the central parts of South America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. The above image is actually a composite of hundreds of pictures made by the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) currently operates four satellites carrying the Operational Linescan System (OLS) in low-altitude polar orbits. Three of these satellites record nighttime data. The DMSP-OLS has a unique capability to detect low levels of visible-near infrared (VNIR) radiance at night. With the OLS VIS band data it is possible to detect clouds illuminated by moonlight, plus lights from cities, towns, industrial sites, gas flares, and ephemeral events such as fires and lightning-illuminated clouds. The Nighttime Lights of the World data set is compiled from the October 1994 - March 1995 DMSP nighttime data collected when moonlight was low. Using the OLS thermal infrared band, areas containing clouds were removed and the remaining area used in the time series. (less)

Global carbon monoxide as measured by MOPITT from March 5, 2000 to March 7, 2000 is shown on a globe, which then unwraps to a cartesian projection and zooms into the African Sahel, fading to data of fires from biomass burning from the VIRS instrument on TRMM. High values of carbon monoxide are shown in red and yellow, and the large areas of missing data in white are regions not seen by MOPITT during this three-day period. (less)

People in South Africa have a dynamic but largely unrecorded heritage. The Centre for Popular Memory CPM creates spaces for these stories to be heard seen and remembered The CPM presents various oral history and memory courses for on and off campus students such as a 1st semester postgraduate course Oral History Method and Practice and Theory HST4034Z which provides skills training in oral history interviewing and interpretation an undergraduate course Memory Identity and History HST3037S explores trauma and memory across case studies of the Holocaust Apartheid and Rwanda and the representation of trauma through oral history films photographs cartoons and performances. The video clips are snippets from the following projects. Street Stories, a film documentary project tracking socio political issues and perceptions around race gender and belonging through the individual recollections of over 400 people who live or work on three arterial roads in Cape Town Bridging the Digital Divide. The program concentrates on the generational and cultural divisions between apartheid survivors and their descendants and the IT skills divide between what is perceived to be a developing country and first world technology This project seeks to build strategic partnerships that will result in strengthening scholarly dissemination. Performing Stories The CPM project Performing stories trained young people in 4 provinces between the ages of 1835 to use oral history recordings to create performative outcomes (less)

RODEO AND CHEDISKI FIRES IN ARIZONA - On June 21, 2002, the Rodeo and Chediski Fires in east-central Arizona were still two separate fires. This true-color scene from the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus aboard the Landsat 7 satellite shows the massive quantities of smoke streaming northward from the fires, which are burning about 100 miles east-northeast of Phoenix. The smaller Chediski Fire is on the right, and the Rodeo Fire is on the left. Over the weekend of June 22, the two fires merged into a single 300,000+ acre blaze. (less)

This animation shows a unique picture of seasonal fire activity. Here, global fire activity is displayed as tiny particles on a rotating globe 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 overlay shows the date.
