The Emerald Isle is featured in this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from March 18, 2003. From its rocky western coastline, Ireland dips toward a central basin of grassy plains dotted with bogs and lakes. At top left of the image is the Atlantic Ocean, at bottom is the Celtic Sea; at right is the Irish Sea. At bottom right, the St. George´s Channel separates Ireland from Wales. At top right, the North Channel separates Northern Ireland from Scotland. On the eastern coast, a lone red outline marks the detection of a fire south of Dublin.
