Fires in Mexico and Central America

April 4, 2013
Through patchy clouds, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite got a peek at the progressing biomass burning season in southern Mexico and northern Central America on April 11, 2004. Actively burning fires detected by MODIS are marked in orange in this scene, which centers on the southern Gulf of Mexico (center top) and the Yucatan Peninsula (right).
