|Abstract:||In this paper, we use the MODIS thermal anomaly product (hotspots data) to study the temporal and spatial patterns of vegetation fires in the western part of Insular Southeast Asia for a decade from 2001 to 2010. Fire occurrence exhibits a negative correlation with rainfall, and is more severe overall during the El-Nino periods. However, not all regions are equally affected by El-Nino. In Southern Sumatra and Southern Borneo the correlation with El-Nino is high. However, fires in some regions such as Riau and Jambi in the central part of Sumatra do not appear to be influenced by El-Nino. These regions are also experiencing rapid conversion of forest, especially those in peat areas, to large scale plantations. © 2013 IEEE.|
