Weather of Arabia - Satellite images indicate that the emissions resulting from the Canadian fires crossed the Atlantic Ocean and parts of the European continent, reaching the eastern basin of the Mediterranean Sea.
These emissions traveled more than 8,000 km from Quebec (Canada) to the region, and they accompany the so-called jet stream. These high-speed currents often rush from west to east while they are in the upper atmosphere, about 10-12 km high.
It is noteworthy that the raging forest fires in Canada have been going on for weeks, which covered American cities with a polluted haze, which raised the air quality warning in North America, and even exceeded the rates recorded in the most polluted cities in the world.
