Fires Throughout Thailand, Myanmar, And Laos: Image Of The Day

NASA,

DESCRIZIONE

For the past two months, wildfires and agricultural fires have littered the Indochina landscape, periodically filling the skies with a thick, grayish layer of smoke. This image was acquired on April 5, 2002, by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiomter (MODIS), flying aboard NASA's terra.nasa.gov/'' target=''outlnik Terra satellite. Each of the red dots on the image represents an individual fire. As one can see, most are clustered around southern Cambodia, northern Thailand, and northern Laos -- all areas that have undergone severe deforestation in recent years. (Please note that the high-resolution scene provided here is 500 meters per pixel. For a copy of this scene at the sensor's full resolution, visit the MODIS rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/gallery/?2002095-0405'' target=''outlnik land rapid response system site.)
