Caption: Mekong Delta, Vietnam. Infrared SPOT satellite image of the Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam. North is towards the top. Thick vegetation appears red, water is dark blue where clear (lower right) and pale green where rich in sediment. Note the huge quantity of sediment being washed into the South China Sea. Much of the land in this part of Vietnam is irrigated and farmed. Flooded rice paddies appear pale blue to red depending on age of the crop. The numerous river channels are lined by swamps (dark red). The small town (blue) above lower left is Khanh Hung. Image data gathered by one of the French SPOT satellites.
