Haze Over Eastern China
This page contains archived content and is no longer being updated. At the time of publication, it represented the best available science. However, more recent observations and studies may have rendered some content obsolete.
The air over the eastern China cleared somewhat on February 25, 2004, as the haze and pollution (gray pixels) moved eastward over the East China Sea and toward the open Pacific Ocean. There also continues to be a large amount of sediment (light brown) washing into the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea.
