Spain - December 8th, 2010

This orthorectified image shows a coastal area of Spain along the Mediterranean Sea near the city of Cartagena (visible on the shores near the bottom of the image).

The lagoon near the center of the image is Mar Menor (meaning small sea), a salty lagoon in the south-east of the autonomous Community of Murcia. It is separated from the Mediterranean sea by La Manga, a sandbar 22km in length and with a variable width from 100 to 1200m.
