The Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features a Copernicus Sentinel-1 view of the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic Ocean.
Located just over 300 miles from the tip of South America, the Falklands are made up of two main islands and hundreds of other smaller islands and islets.
The Falkland Islands have diverse landscapes including mountain ranges, flat plains, rugged coastline, and cliffs. The islands are covered with grasslands, which are widely used for raising cattle and sheep. The region also provides important habitats for five species of penguins and hundreds of bird species.
