to Moderate smoke was seen emanating from Southeastern Cuba, blowing
into the Caribbean Sea.

AEROSOL/SMOKE:
Central-Southern Mexico/Gulf of Mexico/Yucatan Peninsula/Central
America/Cuba/Hispaniola/Pacific Ocean...
A large area of predominantly light to moderate smoke attributed to
widespread seasonal fire activity throughout central-southern Mexico,
Yucatan Peninsula, Central America and northern South America was observed
today over southern Mexico, Cuba, Hispaniola, the Gulf of Mexico, Central
America, and the Pacific Ocean off the southern coastline of Mexico,
and east over the northern Caribbean Sea. Moderate smoke was visible over

volcanic emissions and industrial sources in Mexico contributed to the
