MODIS image of Turkey

MODIS bands 1,4,3 RGB true color image of Turkey on the 13th of January 2002.

The predominantly mountainous terrain of the Republic of Turkey is covered in snow in this MODIS true-color image produced from data collected on January 13, 2002. The snow-laced peaks of the Kure Daglari mountain range in the north can be seen as they range from the upper-middle of the image to the upper right. They parallel the northern coastline, which opens to the Black Sea. Also visible in this image, at the bottom right, is the island of Cyprus.
