Numerous smoke plumes from gorse fires in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland are visible in this image. The plumes from fires in County Donegal (northwest Ireland) are drifting offshore and dispersing over the Atlantic Ocean. A smoke plume can also be seen emanating from the island of Colonsay off the west coast of Scotland. The majority of the United Kingdom is cloud free with coastal sediment from river runoff and an algal bloom evident in the North Sea.
