Fires in Eastern India

February 20, 2013
On March 6, 2003, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite detected scores of smoky fires (red dots) burning in eastern India south of the Ganges River (upper right). Smoke is wafting out over the Bay of Bengal (right). The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS’ maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters. Credit: Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team at NASA GSFC
