Caption: Shatt al Arab river delta, Middle East, infrared satellite image. North is at top. This delta is formed where the Shatt al Arab River flows from upper left into the Persian Gulf (bottom right). The delta's land is formed by silt (light blue). The Shatt al Arab River is formed by the merging of the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The land is divided between Kuwait (lower left), Iran (upper right) and Iraq (along river). This 180-kilometre- wide image was taken on 23 December 1972, in visible and infrared wavelengths, with the Multispectral Scanner (MSS) sensor on NASA's Landsat 1 satellite.
