Caption

Asia. Cloudless satellite image of Asia in flat projection; this exaggerates east-west distances in the northernmost part of the image (at top). The colours of the land approximate to natural tones, whilst blue colour-codes represent ocean topography. The snow-capped Himalaya mountains are at lower left. To the northeast of the Himalayas is the Gobi desert. 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.
