Caption: Middle East, satellite image. North is at top. Vegetation is green, water is dark blue and bare ground, mostly desert, is yellow-brown. At centre is the Arabian Peninsula, mainly comprising Saudi Arabia, bordered on the left by the Red Sea and on the right by the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea (bottom right). Iran lies between the Caspian Sea (top right) and the Persian Gulf. To the right of Iran are Afghanistan and Pakistan, and to the left is Iraq. North-east Africa is at lower left. The Nile delta (green) of Egypt is clearly seen draining into the Mediterranean Sea (upper left). This image is compiled from data obtained by MODIS on the TERRA satellite from June-September 2001.
