Smoke on  the water: VIIIRS imagery provides a “true-color” view of the pollution.
Smoke on the water: VIIIRS Red-Green-Blue imagery provides a “true-color” view of the smoke. (Note that these images do not represent what a human would see from orbit. In these images, the effect of Rayleigh scattering, which would add “blue haze,” has been taken out.) While useful, it is often hard to distinguish smoke over clouds and, sometimes, over dark ocean surfaces. Credits: NASA/Colin Seftor.
