Kuwaiti islands

This Envisat image features the Kuwait islands of Warbah and Bubiyan, located at the head of the Persian Gulf. The image was created by combining three Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) acquisitions (22 August 2009, 26 September 2009 and 31 October 2009) taken over the same area. The colours in the image result from variations in the surface that occurred between acquisitions.

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.
