Agricultural fires in Ukraine and Russia
Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team
Numerous fires (marked with red dots) are burning in Eastern Europe, likely as a result of regional agricultural practices. The body of water at the lower left of this true-color MODIS image is the Sea of Azov. The Sea is bordered by Ukraine to the northwest, west and southwest and by Russia to the northeast, east, and southeast. Running along the far right of the image is the Volga River.
