Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Falkland Islands

Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Falkland Islands

This Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Falkland Islands shows the Falkland Islands in the south Atlantic Ocean. The image gives a realistic up-to-date visual color impression of the area as it appears during the southern hemisphere summer, with most source data from December/January.

This Sentinel-2 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.

The mosaic features seamless coverage of the ocean using the Green Marble mosaic for areas further from the coast without Sentinel-2 coverage.

Source data is exclusively Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery from 2015 to 2018.

In addition to the visual color mosaic there is also a vegetation data set available based on the same Sentinel-2 imagery depicting the maximum amount of vegetation at every point.
