MISR Where on Earth…? Quiz #31

July 12th, 2019 by MISR Outreach Team

The Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) team at NASA is pleased to offer its 31st “Where on Earth?” quiz.

To participate, visit https://climate.nasa.gov/quizzes/misr_quiz_31/

When you visit that page and press “start,” you will be presented with nine multiple-choice questions (one for each of MISR’s nine cameras) about the image above. You may research the answers using any website or reference material you like. You cannot go back to previous questions, so make sure of your answer before proceeding!

The natural color image above was acquired by MISR’s vertical-viewing camera in July 2017 and represents an area about 300 kilometers by 240 kilometers (190 miles by 150 miles). Note that north is not necessarily at the top of the image.

If you answer all of the questions correctly, you will be eligible for a prize. The deadline for entries is July 18, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Note – if you try to answer on this blog, you will not be eligible for the prize, so click here to take the quiz.

    I was kind of mad about question 3 where they listed Dubrovnik as an island (it isn’t). I consider that unfair. Shame on you MISR (not this site)!

    The Croatian and Italian shorlines of the Adriatic Sea, with north at the bottom of the image…you need to try harder!
