USA - August 1st, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image stretches along the southern shoreline of the United States of America along the Gulf of Mexico, from Louisiana (left), to Mississippi, to Alabama, to the Florida Panhandle (right, visible upon opening full image). New Orleans and part of the Mississippi River Delta arm, in Louisiana, can also be seen entering the image from the left edge.

Bodies of water of note in this image include Lake Pontchartrain, north of New Orleans, and Mobile Bay, an inlet of the Gulf of Mexico, lying within the state of Alabama. Its mouth is formed by the Fort Morgan Peninsula on the eastern side and Dauphin Island, a barrier island on the western side.
