Switzerland Country Mosaic
January 16, 2006
This Mosaic Full Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) image was acquired and centered over Switzerland, a small federal state in central Europe and one of the most mountainous countries, with more than 70 percent of its area covered by the Alps. From these the headwaters of several major European rivers such as the Rhine, the Rhne, the Inn, the Aare or the Ticino, flow down into lakes such as Lake Geneva, Lake Zrich, Lake Neuchtel and Lake Constance.
