Description

These Copernicus Sentinel-3 images show how this year’s heatwave has taken its toll on vegetation in northern Germany, Denmark and Sweden. The first image shows how green the vegetation was on 30 June and just over two weeks later the vegetation had turned dry and brown.

This wide view was captured by Sentinel-3’s ocean and land colour instrument. The Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission has also been used to capture the difference between July 2017 and July 2018 over Denmark: Denmark scorched.
