Satellite view of the Andes Mountains in South America.
Titel Satellite view of the Andes Mountains in South America.
Caption November 13, 2010 - Sunlight painted the Central Andes in a varied palette of muted earth tones, while bright white banks of marine stratocumulus clouds shrouded the Pacific Ocean on a spring day in South America. In the north, the tan coastal plains of Peru rise to the Altiplano, the most extensive area of high plateau on Earth outside of Tibet. Lake Titicaca, seen in this image as a deep inky blue splotch on the Altiplano, sits on the border of Peru and Bolivia. To the east the deep greens of the Amazon rainforest are visible, although in some areas a thin blue haze veils the forest. A stark white circular pattern marks the Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat. In South America, the Andes mountain range blocks Pacific moisture, resulting in rainfall on the western slopes, but an arid climate just downwind on the eastern side of the mountains. In the southern most section of the image this difference in moisture is clearly illustrated. The forests and grasslands of southern Chile are intensely green, while western Argentina, just across the snow-dusted high Andean peaks, appears as a stark, desert-like tan., 5625587
