Scores of fires burned across northern Angola and southern Democratic Republic of the Congo on May 11, 2004, shown here in this true-color Aqua MODIS image. The fires, which are marked in bright red, send streamers of grey-blue smoke into the air. The widespread nature of the fires and the time of year suggest that these fires are being set intentionally for agricultural purposes. Though not necessarily hazardous, such large-scale burning can have a strong impact on weather, climate, human health, and natural resources.
