South Sandwich Islands cloud formations.

All,

Whilst tracking iceberg A-68A via Metop images, there has been some good imaging of herring bone cloud formations caused by the South Sandwich Islands and south westerly winds.
This is quite a frequent event it seems.

Yesterdays image, also A-68A's finger is visible to the left.

Regards,
John.

John,

we only have trouts here. Seems to be a wave induced effect in a stable atmosphere like alpine cumulus lenticularis or lower wave clouds in the grampians.
Here is my 50% height and width reduced version from the OLCIs. Sentinel-3B covers most of the picture while Sentinel-3A adds the corner at bottom right.

Cheers,
Ernst
