Earth from space. Cloudless satellite image of the Earth, centred on the Arctic or north polar region. The colours of the ice & land approximate to natural tones, whilst blue colour-codes represent ocean topography. The Arctic region consists of an ice-covered ocean which is almost wholly surrounded by large land masses. This image was compiled 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.
