Coastal Plains and Mountains in France and Spain43.6N 0.2E
This image stretches across France (above), over the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees, to Spain (below). In Spain, numerous mountain ranges appear as brown areas crossing the Meseta Central.
Most of the land visible in France, by contrast, is significantly flatter, belonging to the northwestern coastal plains. The country’s more mountains areas, by the Alps, for example (upper right quadrant), are cloud-covered.
