Caption: South America. Cloudless satellite image of the continent of South America. North is at top. The colours of the land approximate to natural tones, whilst blue colour-codes represent ocean topography. Along South America's western edge are the Andes Mountains. The continent's largest river is the Amazon (at upper centre) which drains a large area of tropical rainforest. This image was comp- iled 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.
