Caption: Forest fires in South America. Satellite image of smoke from thousands of fires (red circles) in South America, near the Brazil-Bolivia border. The Andes (centre left) are acting as a partial barrier to the spread of smoke. The quantity and thickness of smoke indicates that forest are burning, as well as grasslands and agricultural land. Image taken on 18 September 2004 at 17:30 GMT by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) aboard NASA's Aqua satellite.
