Heavy Rain in Queensland, Australia


A monsoon low-pressure system moved into Queensland, Australia  in late February and early March 2010, inundating a vast expanse of land with some areas reporting heaviest rainfall in 100 years. Color-coded image shows estimated rainfall amounts from February 24 to March 2, 2010. Amounts less than 50 millimeters appear in pale green, more than 450 millimeters  in dark blue.

Widespread Fires, Smoke-filled Skies Across SEA


The skies over Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Laos, and Vietnam were smoke-filled on March 5, 2010, when NASA’s MODIS captured this image. Hundreds of active fires in the region are outlined in red. Small fires are often lit by farmers to burn off stubble and weeds, while larger fires generating thick smoke plumes may be forest-clearing fires. Credit: NASA
