Landsat mosaic of the Faroe Islands

Landsat mosaic of the Faroe Islands

This Landsat mosaic of the Faroe Islands gives an up-to-date visual color impression of the Faroe Islands - an archipelago between Iceland and Norway in the north Atlantic Ocean. For this I processed and assembled Landsat- and Sentinel-2 images for the area.

This Landsat mosaic can be considered a higher resolution supplement to the Green Marble and similarly it represents the surface color with compensation for the effects of the atmosphere. Selection of source data is targeting a late summer time frame with priority on July to September.

The mosaic features seamless coverage of the ocean using the Green Marble mosaic for areas further from the coast without Landsat coverage.

Source data is Landsat 8 imagery from 2013 to 2016 and Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery from 2015 and 2016.
