Vapour spout Featured 12 Feb 2003 Print

Vapour spout

Vapour spout. This type of weak localized vortex may occur over water near a lava flow that has reached the coast. Lava pouring into the sea boils the water, causing local cloud formation (top left), and raises the temperature of the surrounding water. If wind blowing around the area creates a rotating air mass, this rotation in combination with strong updrafts from the heated sea surface and the saturated atmosphere from the clouds can create a funnel of air. The reduced pressure within the funnel may draw in some of the water vapour from the nearby clouds, to form a vapour spout

Sahara Desert, Chad

Sahara Desert, Chad, satellite image. This area of the Sahara Desert is a rocky landscape with cliffs (one running down from upper right) amid the arid landscape (orange). Water channels (mostly light blue) carve their way through the desert, forming desert oases. This area is near the Terkezi Oasis, and lies in the north-east of Chad. This image is about 50 kilometres across. Image acquired in visible and infrared wavelengths on 22 October 2000 by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) sensor on NASA's Landsat 7 satellite
