Haze over Korea

Haze over Korea

14October 2006

A thick band of smog and haze crossed the Yellow Sea, Korean Peninsula, and Sea of Japan on9 October 2006. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite took this picture the same day.

In this image, the pollution appears as a dingy plume of grey-beige, so thick in parts that it completely obscures the view of the underlying land or water. At least some of this smog may have resulted from fires on Borneo.
