Caption: Flooded Missouri River (image 2 of 2). Coloured three-dimensional computer image, based on satell- ite data, of the Missouri River, USA, in flood. North is at right. Flood water (blue) has covered most of the bare soil (red) of the ploughed fields beside the river. Vegetation is green. The record rainfall of summer 1993 caused the river to burst its banks and flood this large area of land. A flood of this size is expected to occur only once every 100 or more years. The image was produced from data collected on 27 September 1993 by the Thematic Mapper on the US Landsat 5 satellite. For the river before the flood see image E160/123.
