McNalley and Pines Fires in California

McNalley and Pines Fires in California

On August 7, 2002, scattered fires were detected across California by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra satellite. In the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the southeast of the green vegetation in the San Joaquin Valley, the Mc Nalley Fire is burning in the Sequoia National Forest. At bottom right, smoke from the Pines Fire near San Diego wafts over the Salton Sea.
