Ship-Wave-Shape Wave Clouds Induced By South Sandwich Islands

April 4, 2013
The air ripples around the South Sandwich Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean, forming wakes in the clouds. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of the ship-wave-shape wave clouds on April 14, 2004.
