Tropical Cyclone Funso

January 15, 2013
Tropical Cyclone Funso brought gusty conditions and flooding rain to the coastal regions of Mozambique. The Visible infared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument, a scanning radiometer, collects visible and infared imagery and radiometric measurements of the land, atmosphere, cryosphere, and oceans. Shown above is a VIIRS (375-m resolution) infared view of Tropical Cyclone Funso on January 24, 2012. The coasts of Mozambique (left) and Madagascar (right) can be seen on either side of the storm.
