SAR-Sharpened Image of Kuwait, Iraq and Iran – June 18th, 201130.4N 48.0E
This image was created by merging orthorectified ASAR and MERIS images of the Middle East, generated by Chelys MOSRI, using a technique we call “SAR-Sharpening”.
SAR-Sharpening merges high resolution radar and lower resolution multispectral imagery to create a single high resolution color image.
Visible in the lower part of the image are the coasts of Kuwait, Iraq and Iran (left to right) along the Persian Gulf and the mouths of the Shatt al-Arab River. Moving northward, one crosses the valley around the river before coming to mountains in Iran.
