This image was derived from the visible, near and thermal IR bands from the AVHRR aboard the NOAA-14 satellite. It was created by draping an RGB image over a digital elevation model (DEM) generated from cloud top temperatures. The DEM was derived from an inverted channel 4 band (thermal IR) while the RGB image was created using channel 4, channel 3 (near IR) , and channel 4 (visible). The perspective view represents an elevation of 85° from horizontal. The date of this scene is July 19, 1997 at 20:20 UTC.
