Caption: False-colour satellite image of the Earth, centered on the Indian Ocean. The outline of the whole east coast of Africa may be seen, with the island of Madagascar lower left of centre. The Arabian Peninsula is particularly clear, as is the adjacent Iran/Afghanistan region. Part of India is seen between the clouds upper right of centre. At the lower right edge is the west coast of Australia. Note the turbulent mixing of air near Antarctica at bottom shown by the swirling clouds. This shows the breakdown of the circumpolar vortex winds which confine air over the south pole during the southern winter and spring. This image was made by a GOES satellite in November 1983.
