English: A vortex street often occurs when cloud formations over the ocean are disturbed by wind passing over land or another obstacle. In this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from July 5, 2002, marine stratocumulus clouds have arranged themselves in rows, or streets, which are usually parallel to the direction of wind flow. Downwind of obstacles, in this case, the Canary Islands off the west African coast, eddies create turbulent patterns called vortex streets.
Español: Una calle del vórtice ocurre a menudo cuando las formaciones de nubes sobre el océano son perturbadas por el viento que pasa sobre la tierra u otro obstáculo. En este color verdadero Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) de la imagen del 5 de julio de 2002, las nubes estratocúmulos marinos han dispuestas en filas o en las calles, que suelen ser paralelas a la dirección del flujo del viento. A sotavento de obstáculos, en este caso, las Islas Canarias frente a la costa oeste de África, los remolinos turbulentos crear patrones llamados calles vórtice.
