China - October 21st, 2011

Haze has been shrouding the skies over eastern China for the last ten days. It remains mostly confined to the eastern coastal plains, as high mountains prevent it from spreading further westward.

Although agricultural fires probably play a role in the formation of the haze, it more likely results from urban and industrial pollution in this densely populated area.
