    Uuuff, that's seems to be a lot of nasty weather in that picture. Thanks for sharing!

      Earth observation from satellites isn't just about images. It is interesting to read about how an instrument originally designed to measure sea-ice thickness from a satellite has also been used to observe sea levels in the Kattegat during the recent storm surge in the North Sea. Here is a link to the European Space Agency website.

        Somewhere else we have heard that we know less about the deep ocean than the back of the moon.
        Here is a statement that we have more accurate maps of Mars then the deep ocean floor: http://gcaptain.com/scientists-map-o...Captain.com%29
        Until now, that is.

          Metop-B satellite image showing the massive cloud bank clearing the UK which brought strong winds and rain yesterday, 7th January 2005. Now waiting for the next onslaught!

            What a fearsome image, Cecilia. The next onslaught has come and gone - more or less, though I admit I'm losing count of the successive waves.

              Had our strongest winds here in Edinburgh on Thursday, with the ironic result that the aerial dish used for receiving weather satellite data has become miss-aligned!

              I liked the part towards the end where it is pointed out that our Great Sandy Desert has virtually no sand - quite true, but hard to believe it lost all of its sand since it was given that name in the 19th century or so.

            Satellite image of a sunny Scotland this Easter Sunday lunchtime also shows aircraft contrails (with shadows) and ship trails.

                NOOA has launched it's newest weather satellite into equator orbit (geostationary??): http://gcaptain.com/photos-noaas-new...Captain.com%29
                Seagull can probably tell us all about it when she gets back from her galavanting in the Americas.

                Amazing clarity of these images.
