Image Caption:
STS49-85-068: Local Winds Dominate Flow This scene views the is-
land of Java in the Indonesian chain. The normal easterly wind
directions are being modified by several local effects creating
the strange curved cloud street patterns. The wind direction is
being influenced by sea breezes from both sides of Java and by
the winds forced to rise up and around the islandUs mountains
(orographic and afternoon heating). (Picture was taken on May
12th, 1992 at 01:59:57GMT, Space Shuttle located at 9.39S
106.54E)
