Caption: Great Rift Valley lakes, Ethiopia, satellite image in infrared and visible light. The colours shown are assigned to different parts of the visible and infrared spectrum, revealing vegetation (green), water (blue) and bare ground (red/grey). The area shown is about 700 kilometres wide. These lakes are in southern Ethiopia, in the northern part of the Great Rift Valley. The lakes vary from shallow to deep, some being volcanic craters, and from a milky blue to red colour, depending on the origin of the lake and its surroundings. The larger lakes to the south support large amounts of wildlife. This image is a GeoCover mosaic using data from the Landsat 7 satellite's ETM+ sensor in 2000.
