Smoke from Indonesian fires, satellite image. Smoke from fires burning in oil palm areas in southern Borneo (Kalimantan) in Indonesia. The fires are typically started by farmers burning off agricultural and logging debris to clear the way for new crops such as oil palm and acacia pulp. Shortwave-infrared observations have been placed over a natural-color image to highlight the locations of active fires (one at lower centre, orange). This image was obtained in September 2019 by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8.
