West Africa – December 16th, 2012

Dozens of fires can be seen burning across Ghana, Togo, Benin and Nigeria (lower half of image, left to right). Individual plumes can be seen blowing towards the west and contributing to a general haze over southern West Africa. Partially visible at the bottom edge is Lake Volta, in Ghana. In the full image, the Kainji Reservoir, in Nigeria, can be seen to the east.
