Caption: Convective cloud simulation. 3-D supercomputer simulation of convective clouds over South America.
This image was produced as part of NASA's 3D Cloud-Resolving Model, a project designed to improve weather forecasting and long-term climate analysis. Convective clouds are produced from columns of warm air rising from the surface.
