This Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) multitemporal colour composite image is centred over Riga (bright area top centre), the capital of Latvia, situated on the Baltic Sea coast at the mouth of the Daugava River.
The image shows a landscape of forests (grey patches) and a fertile terrain (various colour patches indicating cultivated agricultural fields), that is mostly entirely flat or a gently undulating plain.
The image is made of three ERS-2 SAR PRI (Precision Radar Image) images acquired on different dates and assigning a colour (RGB) to each date of acquisition.
