Caption: Landsat image of the Ganges delta, Bangladesh. The image was recorded in February, at the end of the dry season. North is to the top. The red areas are dry-season crops, almost ready to harvest; to the south, the pale blue areas dotted with red are regions being prepared for rice planting; to the southwest, the greenish areas are infertile swamp land. The River Ganges flows from India to the west; the river that joins it from the north is the Brahmaputra. The Ganges Delta changes shape from year to year; the blue tone at the river mouth is due to the huge volumes of sediment being carried into the Bay of Bengal.
