Fires in Madagascar

02 June 2004

Scattered fires were burning across western Madagascar on 02 June 2004, and were detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua satellite. The active fire locations have been marked in orange in this scene. Along the coast, the island’s characteristic reddish soils run off into the ocean and disperse in a greenish cloud (Source: Earth Observatory)
