Caption: Satellite picture of Asia formed from a mosaic of images taken by Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) equipment onboard a NOAA satellite. The picture covers an area stretching from Japan at top right, Borneo at bottom right and part of the Caspian Sea at upper left. The series of rugged folds in the centre, the Plateau of Tibet, have been thrown up by the collision of the Indian and Eurasian continental plates. The NOAA satellites follow polar orbits and provide information for weather forecasting, snow and ice monitoring and sea surface temperature measurement.
