Computer image of a cloud-free satellite mosaic of the whole Earth showing Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. This global 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 show the characteristics of a particular region. The chosen images were compiled into a database using a supercomputer which then generated this composite image. This globe is part of the GeoSphere Project, created by Tom Van Sant in Santa Monica, California.
