Caption

Atmospheric pollutants. Map showing levels of anthropogenic aerosols in the Earth's atmosphere on 31st May 2003. Lower concentrations are beige, higher concentrations are orange. Much of this pollution is a result of the rapid industrialisation and growth of China and other parts of Asia. Although some is also due to coal-burning stoves and forest fires in Russia. The pollution is being blown from east Asia across the northern Pacific Ocean to the West coast of North America. Data obtained from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board NASA's Terra satellite.
