How does the thickness of a cloud change the way it looks from the
satellite? This image is in the visible part of the spectrum, and
the radiant energy is a function of not just temperature, as was the
case in the IR example.
The vertical scale changes the cloud thickness and its effective
You can modify the surface characteristics which will, in turn,
alter the brightness of the scene, by using the horizontal sliding scale.
What happens to the image when you make the cloud thinner?
