In the vicinity of the Markha River in Arctic Siberia, the earth ripples in techniques that researchers do not absolutely realize.

Earlier this week, NASA scientists posted a collection of satellite images of the peculiar wrinkled landscape to the agency’s Earth Observatory web site. Taken with the Landsat 8 satellite around a number of yrs, the images demonstrate the land on each sides of the Markha River rippling with alternating dim and light-weight stripes. The puzzling influence is visible in all 4 seasons, but it is most pronounced in winter season, when white snow helps make the contrasting pattern even more stark.
