Fires and Smoke in Thailand

Fires and Smoke in Thailand

As can be seen in this true-color scene acquired on March 13, 2002, there were many fires burning across Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia on March 13, 2002, filling the skies with smoke across much of the landscape. This image was acquired by the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), flying aboard NASA’s Terra satellite. The red boxes (see the high-resolution image) indicate the areas recently burned or still burning.
