Italy - June 11th, 2009

The River Po runs in a wavy black line across the top edge of this orthorectified, projected ASAR image of northern Italy.

Below, another straighter, lighter line bisects the image: the motorway connecting four Italian cities. These populated areas appear as rounded white patches, and are, from left to right, Parma, Reggio nell’Emilia, Modena and Bologna.

South of those cities are the peaks of the Apennines, occupying most of the lower half of the image. In the full image, the cities of Prato (center right) and Pistoia (center left) are visible at the bottom edge, at the foot of the range.

Northern Italy has received much snowfall over the last week.

The Alps, to the North, are snow capped, as are the Apennines, running southward.

The lowlands between the two mountain ranges are also covered by snow, with the River Po running between them.

In the first image detail, cities such asĀ  Turin, Milan, Parma, Modena and Bologna can be seen as dark grey circles amidst the snow.

The second image detail gives a closer look at the white peaks of the Alps.
