Summer heatwave takes a visible toll on Denmark
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency shows the impact of an intense heatwave in Denmark, where the lush green vegetation that is visible last July appears completely scorched this year.
Blazing temperatures and a lack of rainfall have had a similar effect across other regions of Europe as well, providing fuel for wildfire outbreaks in the UK, Sweden, and Greece.
These two images were captured from the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission over agricultural fields near the town of Slagelse, Denmark, on July 2017 and July 2018.
