Rainwater Fills Australia’s Channel Country

Dry river channels throughout Australia’s
Channel Country were filled by rainwater in just 6 days, between 2 – 8 March 2011. Summer of 2010–2011 proved to be Australia’s 2nd wettest on its 111-year record, topped only by the rainfall in 1973–1974. Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology has reportedly said that the rainfall is so far more than 70 percent above normal. The above images of SW Queensland and N South Australia, which use a mix of infrared and visible light,  were taken by MODIS on NASA’s Terra satellite on March 2, 2011 (top), and March 8, 2011 (bottom).
