Caption: Asia Minor. False-colour satellite image showing the Arabian Peninsula and Asia minor. Arabia is at centre, bordered by the Red Sea to the left, the Persian Gulf to the right and Europe to the north. At upper left is the Mediterranean Sea, to the right of this is the Black Sea, and at top right is the Caspian Sea. At bottom right is the Indian Ocean. The Arabian Peninsula is mainly covered by sandy and rocky deserts. The heavily-folded nature of the underlying rock, with a more temperate climate in prehistoric times, has led to vast oil reserves in the Peninsula, particularly in the east. The data for this image were gathered by an NOAA weather satellite.
