Australia – December 12th, 2012

Fires in Queensland, Australia, just south of the base of the Cape York Peninsula and southeast of the Gulf of Carpentaria, release plumes of smoke that blow in a slightly curved shape towards the south-southwest.

Also visible here is the use of the Chelys Satellite Rapid Response System (SRRS) “borders” feature, which allows users to download images with countries’ outlines superimposed over cloudcover. Although an area of convection hangs over the southeastern shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria, the Queensland shoreline can be seen thanks to this feature.
