Bavaria. (Image Copernicus Sentinel-1A (2015)/ESA) Munich is on the right & Augsburg at the centre. The cities look like crystals. It's a radar image and the white is radar reflections from buildings. You can see the river Isar that runs through Munich. The two large lakes to the south were created by the melting of ice-age glaciers. The landscape across this area was shaped by glaciers.

Antarctica Peninsula from Sentinel-1A Acquired on 13 April 2014 at 23:57 GMT (14 April at 01:57 CEST) by Sentinel-1A, this image shows a transect over the northern part of the Antarctica Peninsula. It was acquired in the satellite’s ‘strip map’ mode with a swath width of 80 km and in dual polarisation. The colours indicate how the land, ice and water reflect the radar signal differently.

This image over part of the Italian island of Sardinia comes from the very first acquisition by the Sentinel-2A satellite. Launched in the early hours of 23 June, the ‘colour vision’ mission for Europe’s Copernicus programme delivered its first image of Earth on 27 June, which covered a 290 km-wide strip from Sweden down to Algeria – including part of Sardinia.

Copyright ESA Description The gecko-shaped body of water featured in this Envisat radar image was formed by the Bratsk Reservoir in southeastern Siberia, Russia. The reservoir was formed in the 1960s by damming the Angara River to provide hydroelectric power. The dam, 125 m high and 4417 m wide, was built near the city of Bratsk (white area in the upper left). Agricultural crops can be seen along the southwestern side of the reservoir, including grains, potatoes and vegetables.

Siberia. (Envisat image acquired 2006-08-07) Siberia spreads from the Urals in the west to the Okhotsk Sea in the east, from the Arctic Ocean in the north to the borders of Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China in the south. Three great rivers flow across it – the Ob, the Yenisei (flowing from the lower right to the upper left) & the Lena. The Yenisei is the world’s fifth longest river, flowing about 4023 km.

New images show an algal bloom in the Caspian sea that’s so big it can be seen from space. The recently released images taken by South Korea’s Kompsat-2 satellite in 2012 show green waters in a shallow northern section of the sea, known as the Vogel Delta, which indicate an algal bloom is happening there. According to the European Space Agency, high levels of phosphorus, such as those found in fertilizers, detergents and unfiltered sewage, cause algal blooms such as this. Once they take hold, a
A shoreline of the northeastern Caspian Sea is pictured in this satellite image. The Caspian Sea is the largest landlocked water body in the world, with a surface area of 371 000 sq km – larger than Germany. The shallow northern section of the Sea has an average depth of about 5–6 m, although it fluctuates depending on variations in river flow and wind-driven currents. The water appears green in this image, indicating an algal bloom.
