Fires and Smoke in Eastern Asia

February 28, 2013
Southeast of Lake Baikal (top left corner), scores of fires are burning across southern Russia on May 7, 2003. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Aqua satellite shows active fires marked with red dots. The fires are producing rivers of smoke which extend far to the south into China and have spread eastward over the Pacific Ocean. Credit: Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
