Caption: Rectangular GeoSphere satellite mosaic image of the whole Earth centred on the Pacific Ocean. Colours in land areas show natural tones, sea colours give an impression of water temperatures (light blue = cool, dark blue = warm). This is a composite of thousands of images made by the NOAA series of weather satellites. Each image was selected for lack of cloud cover and the representation of the surface colours. The selected images were then merged as a database using a graphics supercomputer which allows any view of the planet to be generated.
