Smoke Over Nigeria and Kainji Lake

10.3N 4.6E

November 29th, 2012 Category: Fires

Kenya – November 25th, 2012

Smoke hangs over Nigeria, reaching to the shoreline and the Atlantic Ocean. Partially visible through the smoke is Kainji Lake, left of center, in the western part of the country. Appearing golden green in color through the haze, this reservoir on the Niger River was formed by the Kainji Dam in the late 1960s. In the full image, Lake Chad can be seen at the upper right, although the smoke does not reach its shores.
