Beginning with a long consideration of Cui Bo's "Hare and Magpies" of 1061, this lecture continues by looking at the bird paintings ascribed to Emperor Huizong and offering a new proposal for how these were made. It goes on to show and discuss bird-and-flower works by Southern Song Academy masters, especially Ma Yuan and his son Ma Lin. Continuing with a handscroll of ink-monochrome images by a late Song literatus-artist, it ends with a miscellany of album-leaf paintings in the Academy styles.

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) provides data in 36 spectral bands, some of which are used in an algorithm to map global snow cover. In this animation, a time series of global snow cover from MODIS-derived 8-day composite snow maps with a spatial resolution of about 5 km shows the dynamic behavior of the advance and retreat of continental snow cover over North America during the winter of 2001-02.
This animation shows the global advance and retreat of daily snow cover along with daily sea ice surface temperature over Asia from September 2002 through May 2003. The snow cover was measured by the MODIS instrument on the Terra satellite, while the sea ice surface temperature was measured by the MODIS instrument on the Aqua satellite. Since these instruments cannot take measurements through clouds, in cloud-covered regions or areas with suspect data quality, the prior days value is retained un
