This Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) multi temporal colour composite image shows Salzburg, city in western Austria on the Salzach River. The image is composed of three ASAR IMP images acquired on different dates and assigning a colour (RGB) to each date (Red: 23 February 2003 - Green: 17 August 2003 - Blue: 04 May 2003). The city, incorporated into Austria in 1814, takes its name from the German words salz (salt) and burg (castle or fort), as the mining of salt has historically been important to the city. Salzburg holds the distinction of being Mozart's birthplace. The Salzburg International Airport is clearly visible in the image to the west of the city.
