Korea and China - March 30th, 2011

Smoke from fires in Asia spreads over the Bohai Sea and the rest of the Yellow Sea, between mainland China and the Korean Peninsula.

Below the veil of smoke, several rivers can be seen emptying tan sediments into the seas. A light phytoplankton bloom is also visible in the Yellow Sea in the lower part of the image.
