Wide-swath Image of the Strait of Gibraltar – October 13th, 200935.9N 5.5W
The main image here is an orthorectified wide-swath ASAR (radar) image of southern Spain and northern Morocco. It is possible to see a larger area as the width of the swath is five times that of a normal IMM image.
The first close-up focuses on the northeastern coast of Morocco near the port city of Al Hoceima, by the center of the Rif Mountains.
The second close-up focuses on the Strait of Gibraltar. Ships can be seen moving through the strait and clustered around the port city of La Línea de la Concepción, on the eastern isthmus of the Bay of Gibraltar, and the nearby British overseas territory of Gibraltar (right edge).
