DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 0100Z November 23, 2017

SMOKE:
Lower Mississippi Valley/Lower Missouri Valley/Eastern Texas...
From the central Kansas/Oklahoma border Western Alabama, a number of
smoke plumes from largely agricultural burns were visible. The plumes
in the Lower Mississippi Valley and Eastern Texas were moving off to
the south to southwest, while those in Kansas and Missouri were moving
off to the north.

Western Alberta...
Visible through breaks in cloud cover, a smoke plume was observed in
western Alberta. The smoke from the parent fire was traveling to the
north-northeast. The extent of the smoke plume is obscured by cloud
cover. Given that this smoke plume was picked out, it is quite possible
that more smoke plumes were present in the region that were obscured by
cloud cover.

DUST:
Caribbean Sea...
A small amount of Saharan dust was visible across the southeastern
Caribbean extending to the north-northwest from the south-central
Caribbean into Jamaica. This dust was moving off toward the west.

AEROSOL:
Southern San Joaquin Valley...
Across the southern San Joaquin Valley, aerosol was observed moving
south towards the southwestern edge of the valley. This aerosol has
caused visibility issues from Fresno to Bakersfield throughout much of
the day. The aerosol is likely enhanced sulfate from tailpipe emissions
as a result of the increased travel for the Thanksgiving holiday.
