Italy - January 6th, 2012

The ridges of mountains running across this orthorectified wide-swath ASAR image belong to the Apennines, a mountain range consisting of parallel smaller chains extending about 1,200 km (750 mi) along the length of peninsular Italy. The Apennine System forms an irregular arc with centers of curvature located in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Here, we focus on that central segment of the range. The center, being thicker and more complex, is geologically divided into an inner and an outer arc with regard to the centers of curvature.
