Crests of the Apennines in Central Italy – July 8th, 200942.3N 13.3E
This orthorectified, projected radar image stretches across central Italy. In the full image, the coasts of both the Adriatic (above) and Tyrrhenian Seas (below) can be seen.
The Apennine Mountains, a mountain range stretching about 1,200 km from the north to the south of Italy, run diagonally through the middle of the image. In the thumbnail, the city of L’Aquila can be observed by a valley near the center.
Of note in the full image is Roccamonfina, an extinct volcano at the bottom right, near the shoreline. The two white areas inside the caldera are Mount Santa Croce and Mount Lattani, volcanic cones.
