This is Mike Bara, college dropout, describing images of Earth from space in his recent book (p.125):
"the clouds are the highest in the atmosphere, meaning that they are reflecting more light back to the camera and at a faster rate. Since they are
returning more light, the clouds are the lightest. The surface areas ... are darker, because they are a bit further away from the camera than the
clouds and therefore the light has to travel further before it is reflected back. The deep blue oceans are therefore the darkest, because the light
has to travel all the way to the ocean floor before it is reflected back to the camera."
I count four MAJOR, MAJOR errors in that short paragraph. Anybody find any more?
