Image Caption: Cloud Wakes around the Aleutian Is.
Here we see how surface topography influences cloud
structure. As the clouds, moving in the direction of the wind, reach
the peaks of the Aleutian Is. chain they take the form of a
wake leeward of the islands. It looks as though the islands
are moving through the clouds like a ship in the water.
