The Island of Borneo is divided among three countries: Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. The Rajang River meets the South China Sea in the northwestern portion of the Malaysian State of Sarawak. Smoke from both large and small fires is blowing north by the prevailing summer winds. Notice the contrast of dark colored rainforest with the lighter clearings where the largest fires are burning. The sediment plumes along the coast are mostly shoreline erosional material caught up in longshore currents. The smaller river at the bottom is the Saribas.
