Cyprus - June 20th, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image shows the eastern Mediterranean Sea, including Cyprus (the island in the lower left quadrant), Turkey (above) and Syria (lower right quadrant).

Visible in Turkey are the Taurus Mountains, a mountain complex in southern Turkey, from which the Euphrates and Tigris descend into Iraq. It divides the Mediterranean coastal region of southern Turkey from the central Anatolian Plateau.
