DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1630Z APRIL 15, 2006.
New Mexico to Lower Plains:
A long plume of smoke can be seen from a fire in northeastern New Mexico
that extends east across the OK panhandle then curves north into western
KS and southwestern NE into a low pressure center in Eastern CO.
- 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.
