Greater London. Multitemporal satellite image composed of three radar images acquired on different dates. North is at top. Each date has a different colour assigned to it (red: December 2002, green: May 2003 and blue: August 2003). London is the white-green area (centre left to upper left). The Thames Estuary (upper right) and Hyde Park in the west of the city (dark brown rectangular patch) are also visible. The colours of the sea and river reflect the differing wind conditions at the time of acquisition. The green orange and red areas correspond to agricultural fields with a high variation from one season to the other. The image was acquired by the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) on the European Space Agency's (ESA) Envisat satellite.
