Drab Thanksgiving

Posted: 23 Nov 2017 05:22 AM

Skies on Tuesday were mostly clear over Iowa, so it is a good time to check in on how we look from space. The featured map is of Aqua MODIS true color imagery and the colors over the state are rather drab. The map is rather interesting though as it shows the various land forms over the state, with forested river valleys and the dominant / intensive agricultural land use over northcentral Iowa. The darker brown areas are mostly fields that have had fall tillage done.

Good = 3
Bad = 0
