Tropical Cyclone 01B

Tropical Cyclone 01B

On May 14, 2003, the MODIS instrument onboard the NASA's Terra satellite captured this bird's-eye view of Tropical Cyclone 01B in the Bay of Bengal. This satellite image reveals that the low-level circulation is fully exposed to the east of the deep convection (dense cloud).

The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS' maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters.
