In the NOAA HMS image above shows that there is moderate to low smoke covering the southeast part of the United States. This smoke is due to agricultural fires as farms are burning their land to prepare for the next farming season. In the Aerosol Watch image below there is a clear path of higher AOD level that corresponds with the path of the smoke in the HMS image above. The smoke is being pushed upward by the wind towards the Mid-East United States. We hope to see smoke in the Luft on a future date at UMBC.
