Floods in Western Australia

Seasonal rains fell across western Australia in late January 2003 and led to mild flooding along the Fitzroy River. Some of the flooding can be seen in the false-color images of this series, acquired on March 4 and 9, 2003, by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument flying aboard the Terra satellite spacecraft. In the false-color images, water is dark blue, dark turquoise, and black. Clouds are light blue and white, and the land is green and tan.
