Agricultural Fires in Goais, Brazil13S 46.7W
A large agricultural area stretches along the state borders of Bahia (right) and Tocantins (upper left) and Goais (lower left), in Brazil. Several fires, probably agricultural in nature, are visible amongst the fields in the close-up.
These fields are located within the state of Bahia, on an 800 to 1000 meter high plateau. A 200 meter dropoff marks the end of the plateau and the border with Tocantins and Goais, which have an altitude of 600 meter or lower.
