Rodeo and Chediski Fires in Arizona

Rodeo and Chediski Fires in Arizona

The Rodeo and Chediski fires in Arizona continued to send smoke skyward on Monday, June 24, 2002, when the Sea-viewing Wide Field-of-view Sensor (SeaWiFS) acquired this image. The plumes from those fires stretch to the northeast in a broad swath to cross the state line into New Mexico. The densest part of this smoke pall is from 170 to 180 kilometers long and from 50 to 60 kilometers across. The grayish haze from other fires in the Four Corners region is also visible.
