Los Angeles USA

March 11, 2005

This ASAR image is centered over most of the city of Los Angeles (grey area), a large coastal metropolis located in southern California in the western United States. The area is situated in a semitropical Mediterranean climate zone, with no significant seasonal changes, therefore resulting in a less colourful multitemporal coloured image. Visible landmarks are: the Port of Los Angeles, located on San Pedro Bay (centre left), the Los Angeles River, a seasonal river that flows through Los Angeles and empties into the San Pedro Bay, and the Santa Ana Mountain Range (centre left).

The image is made of three ERS-2 SAR PRI (Precision Radar Image) images acquired on different dates and assigning a colour (RGB) to each date of acquisition.
