Caption: Gulf of Suez, Egypt, satellite image. North is at top. Water is black. The land geology is made more striking by a decorrelation processing of the data that has accentuated the colours. These show the range of rocks and minerals in this desert region. The Sinai Peninsula is at right, with the Egyptian mainland at left. Nearly the entire Gulf of Suez is seen. The Gulf of Suez is a shallow rift that forms one of the arms of the Red Sea. This 180- kilometre-wide image was taken on 9 June 1984, in visible & infrared wavelengths, with the Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor on a NASA Landsat satellite.
