Earth from space: Cotmeana

Korea’s Kompsat-2 satellite captured this image of southern central Romania in January.
The area pictured is part of a geographic transitional region between the Southern Carpathians to the north and the lowland plains to the south.
Bucharest is some 110 km to the southeast, Bulgaria is about 120 km to the south, and Serbia about 160 km to the west.
The tree branch-like pattern is the result of erosion along rivers and streams. Running down the centre of the image is the Cotmeana river.
Zooming in, we can see that large areas have been divided into hundreds of small agricultural plots.
