Fires in Southeast Asia

Fires in Southeast Asia

Fires (red dots) in Thailand (left), Cambodia (center), and Vietnam (right) are producing smoky skies over Southeast Asia. (Between Thailand and Vietnam is Laos.) Running southward through Cambodia, a broad section of the Mekong River stands out in brown against green vegetation. This true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image was acquired by the Terra satellite on January 13, 2003.
