China - September 25th, 2011

In this image, haze spreads over the plains of northeastern China and over the Bohai Sea. It appears most concentrated at the center right edge, where mountains prevent it from spreading further northward.

The haze may be an after-effect of tropical storms in the Pacific, as such storms can block air currents and thus trap haze. Through the hazy veil, cities and towns appear as tan circles dotting the plain, and greenish sediments can be observed in the Bohai Sea.
