This ALOS satellite image over the county of Hordaland in western Norway illustrates the region’s diverse landscape of fjords, mountain plateaus and fertile valleys. Bergen peninsula is at bottom centre. The city of Bergen, visible in grey on the west coast of the peninsula, is Norway’s second largest city, the centre of Hordaland County and the gateway to Europe's northernmost country’s famous fjords.
ESA supports Japan's four-tonne ALOS (Advanced Land Observing Satellite) as a Third Party Mission, which means that ESA uses its multi-mission European ground infrastructure and expertise to acquire, process and distribute data from the satellite to its wide user community.
