DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1445Z October 5, 2005
A large area of haze/pollution and possible smoke from agricultural
burns extends from northeastern Texas, through the Lower Mississippi
Valley to the Ohio Valley and the Lower Great Lakes. This area is ahead
of a strong frontal boundary over the Central US .
- 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.
