Infrared Cloud Cover over the Atlantic Ocean, September 2001 (WMS)

This animation is a mosaic of cloud cover data taken by several different satellites in the infrared band. Instead of showing a global composite, it is cropped to highlight the Atlantic Ocean. One of the most prominent cloud features during this time was Hurricane Erin.
