Wadden Sea, Europe

This Envisat image captures the dynamic landscape of the Wadden Sea, a tidal wetlands area in the southeastern part of the North Sea that extends some 450 km along the coasts of the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark. This image was acquired by Envisat's Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) instrument on 19 August 2009, working in Full Resolution mode to provide a spatial resolution of 300 m.

ESA Living Planet Symposium 2010

28 June 2010 - 2 July 2010

The 2010 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium follows the previous successful ENVISAT Symposia in Montreux (2007), Salzburg (2004), Gothenburg (2000), Florence (1997), Hamburg (1993) and Cannes (1992). The Symposium will provide an opportunity to present results from missions in exploitation (ERS-2, ENVISAT, GOCE, SMOS, CRYOSAT, Third Party Missions) and to introduce future ESA missions (GMES Sentinels, Earth Explorers, meteorological missions) and national EO missions.
