Caption: North America. Coloured satellite image of the continent of North America. This is a mosaic of several frames gathered by NOAA weather satellites. The red colours represent different types of temperate vegetation. The rich reds in the east (right) and south represent lush grass and forest. The paler, browner reds in the centre show prairie regions, whilst the deep brown of the upper left are coniferous forests. The yellow colours at top indicate the extent of the Arctic tundra, a treeless region with permafrost soil. At top centre is sea ice (grey), and at top right is snow-covered Greenland. Also seen are Central America and the islands of the Caribbean Sea.
