Tanzania – July 5th, 2012

Plumes of smoke from many wildfires can be visible across Tanzania, east of Lake Tanganyika (center), south of Lake Victoria (top right) and north of Lake Rukwa (tan, bottom right). Most of the plumes of smoke are blowing northward or northwestward. They tend to be thicker and more fanned out towards the south, indicating differences in wind strength and direction.
