Caption: Brahmaputra river valley, satellite image. North is at top. The Tibetan plateau (brown, top left), meets with the Himalayas (white) below it. Small rivers carrying Himalayan meltwater flow into the valley of the large Brahmaputra river (running from upper right to lower left) in Assam, India. The Brahmaputra crosses the Indian border into Bangladesh and joins the Ganges river (running from left to lower centre) to eventually flow into the Ganges delta (pale brown and blue, bottom). Image taken by the MODIS instrument on board NASA's Terra satellite on 23rd October 2001.
