China - January 6th, 2012

This image shows a greyish veil of haze, perhaps mixed with some fog, over eastern China. The low-lying haze seeps into mountain valleys along the edge of the North China Plain, leaving the dark brown peaks clear. Such haze is common over the North China Plain, caused by a variety of factors ranging from smoke from agricultural fires, to smog released into the atmosphere in urban areas, to the presence of cyclones in the Pacific Ocean to the east.
