DESCRIPTIVE TEXT NARRATIVE FOR SMOKE/DUST OBSERVED IN SATELLITE IMAGERY
THROUGH 1700Z February 3, 2023

SMOKE:
South Florida…
Seasonal agricultural burning was noted across southern Florida this
morning. Smoke from this activity was seen among scattered to broken
cumulus moving off to the east or east-northeast.

SMOKE/AEROSOL:
Florida/Gulf of Mexico/Southern and Eastern Mexico/Northwestern Central
America/Pacific South of the Southern Coast of Mexico and Northwestern
Central America…
An expansive area of smoke/aerosol mix was noted from across the Tropical
Pacific to the Atlantic Ocean off the Carolina Coast. The smoke/aerosol
is likely the result of an increase in the seasonal agricultural burning
across Mexico with contributions from pollution sources throughout urban
portions of Mexico and gas flaring in the Bay of Campeche. The aerosol
layer was observed moving westward across the tropical Pacific, while
aerosol is being shunted southeastward and drawn east-northeastward by
a cold front crossing the Gulf of Mexico this morning.
