Fires and Smoke in Eastern Russia
In September and October 2002, numerous fires in eastern Russia created a smoke plume that stretched eastward over the Sea of Okhotsk and southward into China. These true-color images were captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instruments on the Terra and Aqua satellites.
