Caption

North America. Satellite image of the Earth, set against a background of stars, centred on the continent of North America. North is at top. Clouds (white) are seen in the atmosphere. On the surface, seas and oceans (blue) surround the land. Land cover ranges from vegetation such as forests and grassy plains (green) to arid areas such as deserts, mountains, and scrublands (brown). Sea ice (white) is seen in the Arctic. Here, Central America and Mexico (lower centre), and Canada and Alaska (upper centre) are mostly covered in clouds, while the main part of the USA is mostly cloud-free. This image, from 2001, combines data from a variety of satellite sensors (AVHRR, SeaWiFS, MODIS) at a range of wavelengths.
