 (JPG) Iraq Sulfur Fire (3,870,277 bytes) ( 3,925 x 4,117 )
A fire has been burning at an industrial sulfur plant in Iraq south of Mosul since June 25. It is producing a noxious cloud of sulfur-containing gases, that, according to local media reports (obtained through the FBIS) is creating a significant environmental and health hazard. Several people have died as a result of the fumes. ASTER‘«÷s TIR bands highlight the presence of SO2 in purple. The ASTER image was acquired on July 14, and covers an area of 60 x 61 km. This image is located at 35.8 degrees north latitude and 43.4 degrees east longitude.
