These views illustrate ice surface textures and cloud-top heights over the Amery Ice Shelf/Lambert Glacier system in East Antarctica on October 25, 2002. On the left, a natural-color view; in the middle, color is used to indicate reflective and texture variations for ice and clouds; on the right, a view that distinguishes clouds from ice.

The image is from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer on the Terra satellite.
