Within the city of Osh at least four and potentially five separate active fire zones were detected with satellite imagery on 13 June 2010 at 6:25UTC (12:25 local time). These fire zones were located exclusively on the eastern side of the Osh River, over mixed residential and commercial building areas. No active fires have been detected today (14 June 2010) as of 13:30UTC. A single active fire zone was detected on the north-western side of the Sulayman Mt. Park, covering an area of predominantly residential buildings. No active fires were detected before 12 June 2010. An additional two active fire zones were located north in the city of Bazar-Kurgan at 8:10 UTC (2:10 local time) on 13 June 2010 covered in separate report. These fires were identified by the MODIS Aqua and Terra satellites covering the time period of 9 - 14 June 2010, and represent the detection of thermal anomalies (active fires) within a 1km2 zone. Within each square zone shown on the map below, there could be multiple separate burning objects. Although this satellite data product cannot discriminate between naturally-occurring fires and those resulting from arson or armed conflict, an assessment has been made of the chronology and spatial context of this data and it is highly probable that these detected active fire locations are directly linked to the reported civil unrest within the city of Osh. Note: it is possible that not all active fires/thermal anomalies have been detected in this area because of intermittent cloud cover, limited fire size, or because the fire(s) were not active at the time of satellite data capture, thus these results could represent minimum estimates. This analysis has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR / UNOSAT at Map scale for A4: 1:50,000; Projection : UTM Zone 43N ; Datum : WGS-84.
