Strait of Gibraltar

Strait of Gibraltar

RADARSAT-2 is known for providing the widest area coverage of any SAR sensor, making it the ideal solution for monitoring large areas of the ocean for a number of maritime domain awareness applications. This image is based on a ScanSAR Wide product over the Strait of Gibraltar. ScanSAR Wide scenes cover an area of 500 km x 500 km at 100 m resolution. This dual polarized image (HH, HV) has been colourized and identifies both tidal current through the straight, as well as the large amount of shipping that takes place between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean.
