MODIS Pic of the Day 28 March 2021
March 28, 2021 - Soft Spring Day across Europe


Sea ice off of Newfoundland and Labrador

Sunshine highlighted a soft spring day across Europe on March 24, 2021.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on board
NASA’s Terra satellite acquired a true-color image of gorgeous scene on
that same day.

The image stretches from the Netherlands in the north to northeastern
Spain and mid-Italy in the south, a span of about 1,400 km (870 miles).
While snow caps the Alps (east) and the Pyrenees Mountains (west), most
of the landscape is colored in various shades of green. Forests are
shaded in deep green, woodlands and grassland typically appear a
brighter green. Agricultural land, which lies fallow much of the
winter, is tinted a light green with tan undertones. This is especially
visible in Italy’s Po Valley and the rich agricultural lands around
Reims, France. Clouds hang over part of Germany and the Czech Republic
in the northeast and east. Spotty cloud dots the air over the English
Channel and covers Great Britain, in the northwest. Clumps of low cloud
(fog) are scattered over many areas near the coast in France, Belgium
and the Netherlands.
