Black bands across a storm center

  • kosmala by kosmala

    In this image, there are black bands across the storm center. Are they artifacts or do they actually indicate something about the storm? Just curious...

    The pattern of the bands appears to be more of a satellite #artifact. It is likely a miscalibration in the temperature where the temperature went outside the valid range and was flagged as "missing" data.

    These are actually artifacts of #bad-data.
