The main image here is an orthorectified wide-swath ASAR (radar) image of Denmark and northern Germany. The width of the swath is five times greater than that of a normal IMM image, making it possible to observe bigger areas.

One close-up focuses on the city of Hamburg, Germany, and the Elbe River flowing past it into the North Sea.

The other shows the Limfjord, a shallow sound in Denmark that separates the island of Vendsyssel-Thy from the rest of Jutland Peninsula. Approximately 180 kilometres long and of an irregular shape with several bays, narrowings, and islands, it extends from Thybor√łn Channel on the North Sea to Hals on the Kattegat.
