Caption: Elbe estuary. Satellite view of the estuary of the River Elbe, northern Germany. The Elbe flows into the North Sea at top left. The reddish brown area at the tip of the land at centre left is the port town of Cuxhaven. The long dark line just above centre is the Nord-Ostsee-Kanal, or Kiel Canal. This links the major port of Kiel, on the Baltic Sea, with the North Sea thus providing a shortcut for ships which would otherwise have to sail around Denmark. The landscape here is primarily agriculutral, as shown by the typical strip- farming field systems. The data for this image were gathered by a Landsat satellite.
