Haze Over Eastern China

31.2N 121.4E

August 19th, 2011 Category: Sediments

China - August 14th, 2011

Haze fills the skies over eastern China, obscuring the coastline and the view of cities, such as Shanghai, below. Partially visible below the haze, however, are sediments from rivers such as the Yangtze and Qiantang spilling into the East China Sea.

This haze set in after Tropical Storm Muifa made landfall and subsequently dissipated, stretching over the coastal plain from Beijing southward, and over parts of Bo Hai and the Yellow Sea. The haze might actually be an after-effect of Muifa, as tropical storms can block air currents and thus trap haze.
