India and Pakistan – November 4th, 2012

Thick smoke from a very large number of fires hangs over Northern India, but is prevented from blowing northwards by the Himalayas. The fires are likely agricultural in nature. Farmers use fire to clear the fields of weeds and residue from previous years crops and to add nutrients to the soil.
