Denmark - October 13th, 2011

This wide-swath ASAR image focuses on the Jutland Peninsula, shared by Denmark (above) and Germany (below). The islands along the lower half of the peninsula’s western coast and extending southwestward along the coast of Germany by the base of the peninsula are the Frisian Islands. The archipelago shields the mudflat region of the Wadden Sea (large parts of which fall dry during low tide) from the North Sea.

Visible off the eastern coast of the peninsula, between Denmark and Sweden, are several large Danish islands. The two largest are Funen (Fyn, in Danish) and Zealand (Sjælland, in Danish). These islands lie between the Kattegat (above) and the Baltic Sea (right).
