Image Caption: Von Karmen Vortices off Guadeloupe Is.
Seeing certain weather features tells us information as to
what the conditions were at the time the photo was taken.
For instance, formation of these Von Karman vortices
requires windspeeds of 5 and 13 meters per second and a
strong low level temperature inversion. If the winds were
higher the vortices would be pulled apart.
