Europe. Satellite image of Europe. North is at top. The image approximates to true colours with land appearing green, water blue and clouds white/ pink. Britain and Ireland lie off the coast of France (lower right) with Spain at bottom centre. Swirling clouds mark the position of a depression or cyclone, an area of low atmospheric pressure, in the Atlantic Ocean at upper left. A cloudless area of high pressure, an anticyclone, lies over the British Isles. Anticyclones bring settled dry sunny weather, while changeable wet windy weather is characteristic of depressions. This image was taken by the American NOAA-14 weather satellite at 13:26 Greenwich Mean Time on August 9 1995.
