Caption: Earth from space. Cloudless satellite image of the Earth, centred on North and South America (upper and lower frame respectively). The colours of the land approximate to natural tones, whilst blue colour codes represent ocean topography. Temperate and tropical land areas tend to appear green as they are vegetated. Arid deserts are brown and snowy regions white. This image was compiled from data acquired by NOAA weather satellites over eleven ten-day periods at an altitude of 833 kilometres to give a resolution of 1 kilometre.
