‘Peculiar’ Caspian Sea cloud tracked by NASA Terra satellite

A “peculiar” cloud, as NASA terms it, was found over the Caspian Sea on May 28. The cloud offers an interesting case study of how satellites can detect such phenomena in Earth’s atmosphere.

Scientists used NASA’s Terra satellite to watch the cloud as it moved towards land and then dissipated in order to learn more about how small stratocumulus features like this one form.
