A cloud-topped boundary layer was simulated and captured to study atmospheric flow. This image was chosen because I like the variety of colors included in the image and the way they mix so that different streams of flow are shown along with the interaction of the streams. Also, I really liked that this was a simulation of flow in the atmosphere and that the flow does not follow only one pattern. I love images that have features similar to clouds so this artistic portrayal of the scientific model is very visually pleasing.
