Mountain tundra landscape with wide river valleys in Norrbotten, Sweden

Description

Information

Mountain tundra landscape with wide river valleys (Norrbotten, Sweden), on the border of Finland. The border between two countries runs along the river in the northeastern part of the image. The area in the northeastern corner of the image is a part of Finland. Alpine (oroarctic) tundra on mountaintops displays in magenta color. Often alpine tundra forms a mosaic with sparse pine forests on rocky or stony ground, indicated by very light gray to green colors. Darker grayish green areas represent more closed-canopy pine forests, in many areas replaced by secondary forests (bright green and green). The yellowish green areas on the mountain slopes, next to the tundra, are mountain birch forests.
