This image was acquired by PRISMA's hyperspectral satellite sensor in July 2020. It is a False Colors composite: RGB = VNIR-42,22,15 on Barentsburg (Svalbard, 78.065041° N, 14.214635° E). The red color represents the vegetation coverage and the light blue to white color gradient is related to the snow and ice presence. The plumes close to the coastline are sediments that reach the sea through the inland waters network.
