GOES-15 0.63 µm visible channel images (above; click image to play animation) revealed the interesting convergence of an undular bore (which was propagating northwestward) and a von Karman vortex street (which was moving southeastward, downwind of Guadeloupe Island) on 20 June 2012. Both of these features were likely traveling within the stable marine boundary layer.
