Reggio di Calabria. Coloured radar satellite image of the Italian port Reggio di Calabria (white area on coast, lower left). This image shows the "toe" at the southern tip of mainland Italy. North is towards the top. The image was made by combining three frames taken on different dates. Differences between the frames show as areas of colour. Farmland is red, green or yellow, the different colours indicating growth of different types of vegetation between frames. Colours on the sea are due to differences in wave patterns. The rippled pattern inland is caused by reflection of radar off mountain slopes. Image produced by European Radar Satellite 1. Area approx.
