Caption: Europe and North Africa. Satellite mosaic image of Europe and the Mediterranean Sea, with an added starfield. The colours in the land represent natural tones. Most of Europe appears green denoting the abundant vegetation. In extreme northern latitudes, the pale purple of the tundra is seen, whilst in southern Europe harsher, semi- arid soils are seen as brown. The deserts of northern Africa and the Middle East are shown in pale brown. Rivers have been emphasised for clarity. This image was created from a database of thousands of images of the Earth made by NOAA weather satellites.
