Earth, topographic and bathymetric map

Earth. Blue Marble: Next Generation cloud-free topographic and bathymetric map of the Earth in July 2004. Highlands and lowlands of the continents are shown as ridges and flat areas, with Arctic and Antarctic ice in white. The seabed depth varies from shallow (light blue) on the continental shelves, to deep ocean basins (dark blue). Topographic and bathymetric data is usually gathered by using aerial and satellite imagery combined with radar and sonar mapping. Landcover data is from NASA's Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) sensor aboard the Terra satellite.

Thermohaline circulation, artwork

Thermohaline circulation. Computer artwork showing all 3 layers (shallow, middle and deep) of the large slow global currents driven by thermohaline circulation. Thermohaline circulation is a part of the large-scale ocean circulation that is driven by global density gradients created by surface temperature and salinity (salt content) differences. In certain areas near the polar oceans, the colder surface water also gets saltier due to evaporation or sea ice formation. In these regions, the surface water becomes dense enough to sink to the ocean depths. This pumping of surface water into the deep ocean forces the deep water to move horizontally until it can find an area on the world where it can rise back to the surface and close the current

Sredinnyy Khrebet volcanoes, radar image

Sredinnyy Khrebet volcanoes. Coloured three- dimensional computer map of the Sredinnyy Khrebet volcanoes in Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia. North is at top. The topography of the region was mapped by the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) on the Space Shuttle Endeavour, using reflected radar pulses. Colour-coding reveals elevation: green is lowest, rising through yellow, red and pink to white, the highest. The Sredinnyy Khrebet range dominates the region. Volcanic lava has smoothed the rugged terrain around the highest peaks (white, lower centre). SRTM is run by NASA, the USA's National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA), and the German and Italian space agencies.
