Review of Land Fires and Smoke Haze Situation for Second Fortnight of June 2018

2.1 During the review period, there were isolated hotspots detected in the ASEAN region, but the overall hotspot activities were generally subdued due to the wet weather.

2.2 During the brief periods of drier weather, there were a few hotspots with thin smoke plumes observed on one or two days in central Sumatra. However, the smoke plumes were localised and short-lived.
