The impact of Big Island vog on the state of Hawaii

It was a quiet weekend for me with regard to this blog as we were in Kona for a  swimming meet. More on that later, in the meantime…

In his post, A Very Voggy Day, Andrew provides a nice link to the MODIS satellite which took  visual images of the island. The clouds are the really white, fluffy stuff. The murky, grey looking stuff is the vog which is generated by Kilauea and which the trade winds carry off to the rest of the island chain.

The image dramatically demonstrates how, when the trade winds are blowing, the best place to be is the east coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.
