Image Caption: This view of the Himalayan Mountain Range, Nepal (28.5N, 82.5E) shows a portion of the mountains and lower valleys filled with smoke from fires set among the subtropical temperate rainforests and alpine slope forests. Some valleys are entirely filled with smoke palls and over fifty individual point sources of burning can be delineated in this scene. These pristine forests are threatened by intensive agriculture and land clearing processes.
