DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1645Z September 24, 2005
Due to the large cloud shield from Hurricane Rita only a small area of
the previously mentioned large area of haze/pollution and possible smoke
from agricultural burns could be seen south of a frontal boundary over
most of North Carolina and extending off the coast around 300 miles.
- Unless otherwise indicated:
- Areas of smoke are analyzed using GOES-EAST and GOES-WEST Visible satellite imagery.
- Only a general description of areas of smoke or significant smoke plumes will be analyzed.
- A quantitative assessment of the density/amount of particulate or the vertical distribution is not included.
- Widespread cloudiness may prevent the detection of smoke even from significant fires.
