DRC and Zambia – July 11th, 2012

Smoke from hundreds of fires in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (above, left) and Zambia (below), creates a haze over the two countries. Through the haze, plumes of smoke from many individual fires can be discerned. The haze is having little effect on the visibility of Lakes Tanganyika (top edge), Rukwa (tan from sediments) and Malawi (parallel to right edge).
