Can we see the Satellites through clouds?

 
Satellites don't just observe Earth using visible light, but also make use of other types of radiation. Each one of these radiation bands provides insights into different areas of interest to scientists. The infrared band, for example, provides information about temperatures while microwaves are particularly useful when it comes to observing precipitation. Using radar, satellite sensors can even penetrate clouds. Radar observing also provides the best data on subtle differences in height of the Earth's surface. This is how satellites can detect the minute movements of the Earth's surface. This is how satellites can detect the minute movements of the Earth's surface. This is how satellites can detect the minute movements of the Earth's crust that can act as indications of impending earthquakes or volcanic eruptions.
