China – October 10th, 2012

Haze continues to hang in the air over eastern China, near the shores of the Yellow Sea and the East China Sea, where there are extensive and densely populated alluvial plains. The haze may be caused by a number of factors, including fires (both natural and set by humans), smog and pollution, and/or dust from the country’s arid deserts.
