GOES-16 (GOES-East) True Color Red-Green-Blue (RGB) images created using Geo2Grid (above) showed widespread smoke from biomass burning across parts of Brazil (south of the Amazon River) on 09 August 2020. Most of this smoke was created by extensive burning during the previous day and evening — but later in the animation, several new smoke plumes can be seen growing from new fire activity.
