Amazon Basin Smoke and Haze

Smoke and haze from numerous fires covers the Amazon Basin in
this photograph taken in September 1988. The burning season in
the Amazon Basin normally occurs between mid-June and mid-
October. The burning season is presently expanding at both ends
and views such as this may become more common. Oblique views can
help scientists to determine the total area of the smoke pall.
