Caption

California, USA. Image 1 of 2. Satellite image of the state of California on America's west coast. Vegetation is green, arid land is brown, the Pacific Ocean is blue/black and snow on the Sierra Nevada mountains (upper centre) is white. Data for this image were obtained by the moderate resolution imaging spectrometer (MODIS) on NASA's Aqua satellite on 2 May 2004 when the area was experiencing a heatwave. The heatwave resulted in an early start for the wildfire season in California, with at least six major forest fires having been reported in southern California by 5 May 2004. See E070/538 for an image showing surface temperatures of the same view.
