Fires in Southeast Asia

February 12, 2013
This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from January 6, 2002, shows scattered fires (red dots) burning across Southeast Asia. At upper left is Thailand, in the center is Cambodia, and along the right edge is Vietnam. In Thailand, the city of Bangkok appears as a large grayish patch along the coast of the northernmost part of the Gulf of Thailand. In Cambodia, the Tonl� Sap Lake appears deep green and brown. The river running southward through Cambodia and emptying into the South China Sea is the Mekong River. This image was captured in the afternoon by the Aqua MODIS sensor, and fire activity had increased compared to the morning overpass captured by Terra.
