Fires on Iberian Peninsula - March 28th, 2012


Fires can be seen in two areas of the Iberian Peninsula: by the west coast near the Spain-Portugal border, and by the northern coast, by the Cantabrian Mountains. A plume of smoke from the former blows over the Atlantic Ocean, will smoke from the latter trails out over the Bay of Biscay. Also visible near the western coast is a phytoplankton bloom, visible more extensively in the full image.
