DRC and Zambia – July 9th, 2012

Hundreds of fires continue to rage across Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (above) and Zambia (below), west and southwest of Lake Tanganyika (upper right). While the upper part of the image is covered in a general smoky hazy, many individual plumes can be observed in the bottom half. These plumes of smoke are blowing west and then northwest by winds over the region.
