Australia has suffered through one of the most severe droughts in its recorded history over the past few months. Compounded by a strong El Niño, the dry season has resulted in major crop losses and widespread wildfires across the continent. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image of eastern Australia shows active fires burning on January 7, 2003.
