Caption: Ganges Delta. Infrared SPOT-2 satellite image of part of the Ganges Delta, Bangladesh. The capital Dhaka appears at top left. North is towards the top. Vegetation appears red; water dark blue (but paler where rich in silt); exposed silt white; urban areas blue- grey; clouds (left) white; bare soil and sparse vegetation are green/yellow. The Ganges Delta is a vast flood plain of alluvial silt, intersected by hundreds of small streams and rivers. The main river here (bottom) is a continuation of the Ganges called the River Padma. Image data gathered by the French satellite SPOT-2 in November (just after the annual monsoon).
