Eastern Haze, Smoke Plumes, & Elevated PM

EPA AIRNow reports mostly moderate air quality for the East and West (California) coasts. MODIS satellite images clearly show haze on the East coast, however no obvious haze was visible in California. Local pollution sources are likely responsible for the increased PM levels. Few smoke plumes were also found in Louisiana (bottom left image).
