The Lena River Delta from space
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the Lena River Delta, the largest delta in the Arctic.
The Lena River is one of the longest in the world. It flows northward from a small mountain lake in southern Russia to the Arctic Ocean.
In this false-color image, the river is visible in bright yellow, splitting into many different channels before meandering towards the sea.
The Copernicus Sentinel-1 mission captured the image on January 14, 2019, during the peak of the Arctic winter.
