Dutch computer site Tweakers.net writes NASA made a few new layers available for Google Earth:
  • sea temperatures
  • Chlorophyll concentrations (indicates the amount of plankton in the sea)
  • Composition of clouds
  • And snow coverage
  • The data comes from the space agency's Modis (Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer).
