Andaman Sea Waves
Most satellite ocean color folks would prefer an instrument that tilted to avoid sun glint. The MODIS instruments do not tilt, so oceanographers sometimes make lemonade out of lemons and extract other information from the glint field.
The above 5-March-2014 Aqua-MODIS scene highlights the surface signatures of internal waves in the Andaman Sea. The basic physics and surface manifestations of such waves have been known for some time now, but the underlying details are still being investigated.
