This Envisat image taken on 30 August 2007 captures the devastation to Greece’s landscape after blazes burned out of control for a week, killing more than 60 people. Burned areas are visible as dark brown. Data gathered from July 1996 to 28 August 2007 was used to plot the number of fires occurring monthly and showed Greece has had four times the number of fires this August compared to its July and August 1998 records.
