This visualization shows clouds from a simulation using the Goddard Earth Observing System Model, Verison 5 (GEOS-5). The global atmospheric simulation running at 7 km per grid cell covered the period from August 17, 2009 at 21 zulu, through August 26, 2009 at 21 zulu at 30 minute intervals. This visualization was designed to closely match a GOES satellite image for comparison purposes.
