English Channel. Satellite image of the area surrounding the central English Channel. North is at top. This cloud-free view uses natural colours, which indicate land cover: vegetation (various shades of green), and urban areas (grey-white). Fields (pale green) are visible at this scale. Colours also indicate coastal features, with the open sea a uniform blue. The English Channel is a strait separating the UK (upper left) from France (lower right) in mainland Europe. The largest city here is London (upper centre).
