Image Caption: Socorro Island Wake Cloud Pattern
A distinct cumulus cloud pattern marks the an island wake within a weak
northerly wind field in the vicinity of Isla Socorro, south of the Baja Peninsula of
Mexico. A smaller companion island, San Benedicto, is visible to the north-
northeast. Socorro rises to just over 3,400 feet and disrupts the winds which
apparently are not strong or persistent enough to form closed vortices.
