This image from March 2, 2013 at 0710 UTC (2:10 a.m. EST) shows widespread biomass burning (red dots) across Burma (Myanmar) and surrounding countries in Southeast Asia. Smoke (light brown) is pooling between ridges and in low-lying areas. Countries shown are Bangladesh (left), China (top right), and Thailand (bottom right). The large river running north-south through Myanmar is the Irrawaddy River.
