MODIS Visible / Water Vapor Image Fader

Hold the left mouse button down as you drag the slider above the image (or use the arrow buttons) to fade between the MODIS visible and water vapor images from 18:10 UTC on 07 April 2000 over south-central Colorado. Note that the mountain waves seen in the water vapor channel occurred in clear air -- there were no wave clouds visible to indicate the turbulent flow regime across this region.
