Fires in southeast Asia - February 25th, 2009

Fires burning in Myanmar, Bhutan and India continue to send smoke throughout the Indochina region.

Whereas yesterday much of the smokeĀ  was covering the Bay of Bengal and Bangladesh, in today’s image a dense cloud of smoke can be seen in the valley around Myanmar’s Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwady) River (left).

The area around the Irrawaddy Delta (bottom left), on the other hand, is relatively clear of smoke. The bay to the East is full of sediments washing into the Andaman Sea from the Salween (Thanlwin) River.
