Caption: Anti-Atlas mountains, Morocco, infrared satellite image. North is at top. This is at the western end of the Anti-Atlas Mountain Range in Morocco. This image shows an area that is 28.7 x 29.4 kilometres in size. Infrared viewing reveals the geology of the area. Limestone, sandstone and gypsum (yellow, orange, green) are sedimentary rocks that were deposited under an ancient ocean. Granite rocks (dark blue/green) are also seen. The collision of Africa and Eurasia (80 million years ago) crumpled and raised the seabed into mountains. Photographed on 13 June 2001 by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) sensor, carried on board NASA's Terra satellite.
