November 2018 California Wildfires Highlights Slide

On November 9, 2018 MISR observed multiple fire plumes over California. These distinct fires display a range of dispersion dynamics providing insights into the energy of the fire. The plumes from the largest fires can been seen in MODIS imagery dispersing into the Pacific. The MISR instrument obtains less coverage than MODIS, but provides smoke plume injection heights and particle properties.
