Caption: Pre-flood Missouri River (image 1 of 2). Coloured three-dimensional computer image, based on satell- ite data, of the Missouri River, USA. The image was taken on 24 September 1992, before the river flooded in 1993. North is at right. Bare soil, such as in ploughed fields, is red, with vegetat- ion green and water black. The record rainfall of summer 1993 caused the river to burst its banks and flood a large area of land. A flood of this size should occur only once every 100 or more years. The image was produced from data collected by the Thematic Mapper on the US Landsat 5 satell- ite. For the river in flood see image E160/124.
