Denmark - November 23rd, 2011

This orthorectified image shows the Limfjord, a shallow sound in Denmark that separates the island of Vendsyssel-Thy from the rest of the Jutland Peninsula. It extends from Thyborøn Channel on the North Sea to Hals on the Kattegat.

The sound is approximately 180 kilometres long and of an irregular shape with several bays, narrowings, and islands, most notably Mors (left). It is deepest at Hvalpsund (24 metres). Its main port is Aalborg, visible as a bright white area at the right edge of the image.

Denmark - September 29th, 2009

In the northernmost part of Denmark, on the Jutland Peninsula, lies the Limfjord (bottom left quadrant), a shallow sound in Denmark that extends from Thyborøn Channel on the North Sea to Hals on the Kattegat (center).

Offshore and northeast of Hals is Læsø, the largest island in the North Sea bay of Kattegat. It is located 19 kilometers (12 mi) off the Danish mainland.

Together with the island of Anholt (central right edge), Læsø belongs to the Danish “desert belt”; during the summer months there is so little rain that streams and ponds partly dry up.

The landmass visible in the upper right corner is part of Sweden. Gothenburg, the second largest Swedish city and the biggest sea port of the Nordic countries, can be seen here at the mouth of Göta Älv River.

The main image here is an orthorectified wide-swath ASAR (radar) image of Denmark and northern Germany. The width of the swath is five times greater than that of a normal IMM image, making it possible to observe bigger areas.

One close-up focuses on the city of Hamburg, Germany, and the Elbe River flowing past it into the North Sea.

The other shows the Limfjord, a shallow sound in Denmark that separates the island of Vendsyssel-Thy from the rest of Jutland Peninsula. Approximately 180 kilometres long and of an irregular shape with several bays, narrowings, and islands, it extends from Thyborøn Channel on the North Sea to Hals on the Kattegat.
