Caption: Great Indian Desert sandstorm, satellite image. The sandstorm is the area of light brown across upper centre. The Great Indian Desert (also called the Thar Desert) occupies most of the image, straddling the border between Rajasthan State (upper right), Gujurat State (lower right), both in India, and Pakistan (centre left and the mountainous area at upper left). Gujurat's coastal region (green, lower right) is a fertile plain crossed by several rivers. River sediments are seen in the coastal gulfs, with darker blue (lower left) showing the oceanic depths of the Indian Ocean. This image covers an area 1943 kilometres across, and was obtained by the MERIS instrument on the Envisat satellite on 10 June 2005.
