Northern Denmark is shown in this Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) image. Clearly seen in the eastern part of the country is the expanse of water, Limfjorden, with the town of Alborg to the north east of the fjord. Further south along the east coast is the city of Arhus. Looking at the image in more detail, in the south east corner, the new bridge over the Store Baelt between the islands of Fyn and Sjaelland, linking Copenhagen to the mainland can be seen. The islands of Laeso and Anholt off the east coast in the Kattegat are also visible. The bright green color off the south east of Laeso and the west of Anholt is likely to be suspended sediment; a lot of sedimentation takes place in this particular channel.
