Australia National Satellite - Cloud / Surface Composite

Clouds from infrared image combined with static colour image of surface.
Radar Image is *MISSING Scheduled maintenance*

Official Bureau of Meteorology Satellite Notes.

About these Images : The clouds/surface composites are created by combining information from two images. The Earths surface (land and oceans) is a static image from NASA's Blue Marble image set. The cloud cover, which is overlaid on top of this surface image, is derived from a greyscale infrared image (see Infrared Images), by removing the temperature range associated with the surface. While a clouds/surface composite gives a good indication of the current cloud cover, it should not be confused with a true visible image.
