Week of 09 June 2002 | GOES-10 Visible Imagery

Java applet developed by Tom Whittaker, CIMSS / SSEC

This animation of the GOES-10 visible imagery shows the extent and motions of the smoke from the Hayman Fire in Colorado on June 10, 2002. The break in the plume is due to the fire slowing down overnight as the winds died down, only to be stoked again the following day. The smoke from June 9 is seen travelling north up into South Dakota. The cumulus clouds that form to the west and north of the Hayman fire are caused by the airflow over the mountains and the resulting topographic lift.
