China – October 1st, 2012

A thick haze, likely caused by fires or smog, hangs over northeastern China. The haze is thickest further inland, but winds carry it in an arch over the Bohai Sea (above) and over the mouth of the Yangtze River (lower right). Sediments can be viewed both in the gulf and pouring out from the rivermouth.
