Forest fires in Sumatra lead to a very extreme climate changes around the earth, so there would still be a difficult job   for   atmosphere   researchers.   This   research   was conducted to know the weather conditions by determining the condition of Water Vapor (WV) on the island of Sumatra. Monitoring the condition of WV can be done by using remote sensing techniques, by processing the image satellite data namely Terra Modis (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer). Data calculation condition WV, as one of the parameters of dynamic atmosphere. The data comes from Terra Modis satellite image, the data on Canal  2,  5,  17,  18  and  19  with  a  wavelength  range; 0,865μm, 1.24 μm, 0.905 μm, 0.936 μm and 0,940  μm. From  these  results  obtained  from  the  average  value  of Water Vapor before and after fires in 2012. Water Vapor taken from TERRA MODIS satellite imagery (y) with a correction factor of 0.9865. Although the correlation (r) between Water Vapor from MODIS data is high, it can be seen that between Water Vapor in 2012 ranged between 3-8 cm. 82%, however only about 68%  of  Water  Vapor  MODIS  diversity  that  can  be presented by the equation  model to  approach  the actual value of Water Vapor. With these data will greatly affect the weather cycle in Indonesia.
