Angola and DRC – July 19th, 2012

Hundreds of fires continue to burn across Angola (lower left quadrant), the Democratic Republic of the Congo (above) and Zambia (lower right quadrant). While most of the region is enveloped in a thin veil of smoke, many individual, thick plumes can be discerned, blowing mostly in a northwesterly direction. The fires are likely agricultural in nature.
