  • <p>A thick veil of smoke covered much of South America on September 14, 2004, as intense fires continued to burn in western Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia. Such widespread fires are not natural in the humid, tropical environment, and these were probably started to clear land for agriculture. As this image demonstrates, local agricultural fires can have a long reach. The smoke inhibits cloud formation and rainfall, which can impact a large area. In this case, the smoke is drifting northwest along the east side of the Andes Mountains, traveling well over a thousand kilometers from its point of origin.

To learn more about the impact of smoke on clouds and the energy balance of the Amazon, please read  earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Study/SmokeClouds/ oClouds are Cooler than Smoke. </p> <p>This image was acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer ( modis.gsfc.nasa.gov MODIS ) on both the  aqua.nasa.gov/ Aqua  and the  terra.nasa.gov/ Terra  satellites. The image is a mosaic of five separate granules (the data collected during a five minute period), and as such, shows a much larger area than a single MODIS scene. The large image provided above has a resolution of 500 meters per pixel.

  • <p><br /></p><p> Northwest of center of this  Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer  (MODIS) image from April 3, 2003, black smoke hangs over Baghdad, contrasting sharply against the muted green vegetation in the Fertile Crescent and the surrounding desert landscape.  Several thermal signatures were detected by MODIS and are marked with red dots. Smoke has shifted direction since yesterday, April 2. The close up of Baghdad shows smoke drifting southward on April 2 and northward on April 3. A few thermal signatures in southern Iraq are likely associated with the few oil wells still reported to be burning in the region. Black smoke pours from these locations as well. </p><p> Highly reflective desert sand and soil pours into the Persian Gulf via the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, coloring waters bright blue-green. Deeper greens may indicate the presence of microscopic marine plants called phytoplankton. Running diagonally from the top center to the lower right of the image, the rugged Zagros Mountain Range is covered with a hint of green. </p> <p>Image courtesy Jacques Descloitres,  rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov MODIS Rapid Response Team  at NASA GSFC</p>
