Caption: South America. Satellite image of South America. Prominent features include the River Amazon (top, right) & surrounding forest, snow- covered Andes, and southern pampas. The image is a composite created from thousands of separate images recorded by the Tiros-N series of meteorological satellites of NOAA. Each Tiros image was selected to best show the characteristics of a region. The chosen images were collated into a database using a graphics supercomputer which then generated this composite. The picture is part of the GeoSphere Project, created by Tom Van Sant, Santa Monica, California.
