NESDIS is now producing some incredible Earth imagery using different satellites with some of the most sophisticated radiation sensors in orbit. I thought I would share a couple with you. Click for the BIG image.
One is a view of the USA taken Saturday afternoon June 7. The other is the sea temperatures around North america and the other shows the temp. anomalies. This allows you to see where the water is warmer or cooler than average. Can you spot the Gulf Stream? How about that cool front through Oklahoma that drenched me yesterday!
Now some high resolution images. Jet contrails over the English Channel, and low stratus off the coast of California, caused by the cold upwelling waters of the Pacific chilling the air above. Again click on the image for a much more fascinating size view.
