Earth observing satellites allow us to collect a wealth of information about the earth's surface properties. In particular, the Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellite, a geostationary weather satellite, transmits a snapshot of the observed brightness temperature over Africa and Europe at 15-minute intervals. The Advanced Fire Information System (AFIS) employs this satellite to detect active fires in near real-time by looking for areas that have unusually high temperatures compared to the immediate surroundings.
