Caption: Genoa. Coloured radar satellite image of Genoa (white, on coast at right), Italy. North is towards the top. This image is a combination of three frames taken on different dates. Differences between the frames show as areas of colour. Farmland in the upper centre, for example, appears blue and green with spots of red, the different colours indicating growth of different crops between frames. Colours on the Mediterranean (lower right) are due to differences in wave patterns. Reflection of radar from mountains slopes produces the strongly rippled pattern inland. Image produced by European Radar Satellite 1. the area shown is approximately 100km x 100km.
