With Siberia still covered in snow (top), parts of northern China (left) and Russia (right) are thawing. Fires (red dots) indicate agricultural activity is underway, as farmers and ranchers prepare land for planting and pasture. This image was acquired on March 22, 2003. 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.
