DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1700Z November 22, 2005
The fire in the Coronado National forest in southeast Arizona continues
to produce a narrow but dense smoke plume extending about 50 km toward
the northeast. Currently the plume barely reaches the New Mexico border
but earlier today the smoke extended well into Hidalgo County, New Mexico.
- 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.
