Satellites capture smoky skies in North America
from GIS User
In mid-August 2018, deadly blazes across the western United States and Canada continued to destroy structures and disrupt the lives of millions of people. But you did not have to be close to the fires to witness its effects. These images show just how far across North America winds have carried the thick plumes of smoke. The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite on the Suomi NPP satellite acquired this image on Aug. 15.
