Thailand - March 5th, 2010

Several fires are visible in Thailand (center) and Myanmar (left), with smoke creating a hazy effect over much of those countries and their eastern neighbor, Cambodia. As we have observed in other articles published this week, hundreds of blazes in Southeast Asia were creating a veil of smoke over much of that region, including Laos and Cambodia.

Many of these fires, common during the Southeast Asia late dry season, may be agricultural, set to clear crops or pastures. Others may have been started in that manner and then accidentally spread to forest land.
