In early 2003, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Aqua and Terra satellites captured these images of fires (red dots) scattered across India (top left), Myanmar (center), southern China (top right), Laos (center right), and Thailand (bottom right). In some of the images in the series, a portion of eastern Bangladesh is visible to the south of India. On February 19, smog from the northeast can be seen filling the valleys in China. The Southeast Asia biomass burning season peaks in late winter or early spring.
