Caption: Western coast of North Korea, satellite image. North is at top. The relatively infertile soils of high ground are orange, while the fertile soils of the river valley plains are dark blue. Water shows as black. North Korea is a mountainous country and its lowlands are largely confined to the western coast. Alluvial plains (lower centre) surround the Chaeryong River, which meets the Taedong River (flowing north-south) at the large gulf of Namp'o Bay. This 180-kilometre-wide image was taken on 1 June 1992, in visible and infrared wavelengths, with the Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor on a NASA Landsat satellite.
