Fires in Madagascar

April 5, 2013
Scattered fires were burning across western Madagascar on June 2, 2004, and were detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite. The active fire locations have been marked in orange in this scene. Along the coast, the island’s characteristic reddish soils run off into the ocean and disperse in a greenish cloud.
