Image Caption: Building thunderstorms over the Brazil
Notice these three building thunderstorm cells as we get a
nadir view. (A 250 mm lens at nadir from 160 nm gets an area
which is about 40 nautical miles on a side). In the next
photo we see these three cells as part of a larger highly
unstable system.
