US Midwest “Food Bowl”



This poster features an image of the US Midwest’s “Food Bowl” captured on July 30, 2016 by Earth observation satellite Sentinel 2A. Vast networks of irrigated agricultural fields can be seen across the US Midwest. The bright red colours dictate healthy vegetation, whilst the blue colour dictates non-vegetated areas. The dramatic colour seen here is produced using a colour-infrared composite (CIR), exploiting the Near-Infrared, Red and Green bands of Sentinel 2 imagery.
