This SeaWiFS pass over Greenland was collected by the ground station in Resolute in northern Canada on July 15th, 2000. The reflectances in the first image were scaled linearly to bring out more of the detail in the clouds, ice, and snow at the expense of darker water and land areas. The reflectances in the second image were scaled logarithmically to brighten the water areas without completely losing the cloud shadow features.
