O3M SAF in EUMETSAT science blog
EUMETSAT has published a science blog with the topic "Recent wildfires in Chile had a devastating impact on the country, its people and the environment.” The O3M SAF aerosol data is used there. Please, see https://scienceblog.eumetsat.int/2017/02/observing-wildfire-smoke-plumes-from-space/. The image below show the smoke plume from the Chile wildfires as seen from space on 29 January 2017.
