Caption: Enhanced-colour satellite view of Europe. This is a mosaic of several cloud-free images of parts of Europe taken by NOAA weather satellites. The colours indicate different surface cover. In west Europe (left) are rich light and mid-green colours showing pasture and arable land. The bluer greens of the east indicate thinner mountainous and tundra-type vegetation. Scandinavia is dark green, indicating extensive coniferous forests. The Mediterranean coast shows many brown, arid regions whilst northern Africa and the Middle East are covered by yellow desert. This mosaic was made in the summer, so very little snow is seen - a few patches remain in Iceland (top left) and the Alps.
