 (JPG) Reykjavik, Iceland (1,757,589 bytes) ( 4,164 x 3,228 )
Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland, and is the world's most northern national capital. With a population of 115,000, it is the heart of Iceland's economic and governmental activity. It was settled around 870 by Ingolfur Arnarson, though there was no urban development until the 18th century. Reykjavik's climate is surprisingly mild thanks to the Gulf Stream. Winters are no more severe than New York City's, and summers are cool and mild. The image covers an area of 62.5 x 48.4 km, was acquired on May 11, 2002, and is located near 64.1 degrees north latitude, 21.9 degrees west longitude.
