The sky in Korea and China always looks so gray. I assume massive pollution from northern China is to blame.

I don't think visible smog would be able to pass over the ocean water of the Yellow Sea.

Greater Seoul is one of the largest metros in the world, and it's mostly surrounded by mountains to the North, East, and South. The prevailing winds come from the West, so I imagine they have a situation similar to L.A. where the emissions they produce get bottle necked in to the valleys. From what I understand, though, they are rapidly pushing to reverse the problem with additional green space and low-emission buses.

You would be shocked at how far particles can travel in the atmosphere.

In the spring, yellow dust all the way from central Asia and the Gobi desert can obscure the sky all the way to Japan. South Korea actually tried to help China with reforestation efforts in their country, which the Chinese then used for their highway projects.

Actually , it just may be .
If you travel along any of the new freeways in China (and they're building hundreds if not thousands of kilometers of them every year) you'll notice that they're all lined with newly planted trees . Not just a single row of them either but about a hundred feet deep on either side of the highway .

I know visible dust and sand can travel over a body of water that large, but I didn't know man-made smog could. Either way, I imagine most of the smog from those pictures originate in Korea.

Every few years we get haze from the Chinese dust storms.....in California. Its light, but it can travel all the way across the Pacific if the winds are right.

Air Pollution Leaving China

Hello Duck From NY

It's not uncommon to see air pollution emanating from China starting from Sakhalin and sometimes from Kamchatka. The air progressively getting worst the closer you get.

From Taiwan to Japan, it is not uncommon to see the air pollution drifting out over the China Sea to Taiwan, reaching Okinawa, along with enveloping large portions of Kyushu and southern Honshu.

The air pollution from the Tianjin, Shandong Peninsula and metro Shanghai regions touching the Korean Peninsula on a regular bases. The Yellow Sea being little if any barrier to the propagating air pollution.

At times, the simple existence of China and the volume of air pollution being produced reaching very unsettling levels with the country's near hemispheric effect on the Earth. At times, China from the air, reminding me of the Peanuts character Pig-Pen, with his "reaching out and touching" metaphoric outgassing cloud of unknown debris and substance, though with China, no longer metaphoric.

I have posted a small website on air quality in China and Taiwan at:

Tower seeems to be moving at a decent pace, seen much slower, like the 1 in lower Manhattan,, Seoul deserves a Super they can be proud of. Lotte tower looks like a cool, somewhat larger version of 1WTC and looks like their not even counting on a spire to boost their numbers.

I'm not actually that big a fan of this building, but it will be exciting to watch as it gets built.

Me neither, but it's still worth watching for its height.
