Abstract: Several fires occur in Türkiye every year for various reasons. Some of these fires are extinguished within a short period of time. But some of them get bigger due to various factors. Prolonged fires harm the biological ecosystem and nature to a great extent. Gases released into the atmosphere due to the fires negatively affect the life of living things. In this study, the number of fires in the Antalya-Manavgat region in 2021 was determined. For this aim, BAI (Burned Area Index), NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index), SAVI (Soil Adjusted Vegetation Index) plant indexes were used to determine the amount of fire by using high resolution satellite images. In addition, the carbon monoxide (CO) and ultraviolet aerosol index (UVAI) values during the fire were investigated using satellite images. The precipitation and temperature values of the region between the years 2015–2021 were discussed. The emitted gases were correlated with the national air quality station data and when the destroyed area after the fire was determined by satellite, it was determined that the CO gas released in the fire produced meaningful results with the national air quality station. © 2023 Elsevier B.V.
