Caption: River Nile Delta and Suez Canal, Egypt, satellite image. North is at top. Water is black, vegetation is green and arid land is brown. The image data has been decorrelated to enhance the colours. The delta of the River Nile is intensively farmed due to the rich and fertile sediment deposited by the river as it reaches the Mediterranean Sea. Centre- pivot irrigation circles are seen at lower centre. At right, the Suez Canal connects the Red Sea to the Mediterranean. This 180-kilometre-wide image was taken on 20 September 1984, in visible and infrared wavelengths, with the Thematic Mapper (TM) sensor on a NASA Landsat satellite.
