Caption: Nile Delta, Egypt, satellite image. North is at top. The River Nile flows from bottom, out of the deserts (light brown) of Egypt, and into the Mediterranean Sea (top, blue). As it reaches the sea it slows down and deposits its load of sediment, forming this fan-shaped delta that is rich in vegetation (green). The delta is around 200 kilometres across. One of the northern ends of the Red Sea is at lower right, and the Suez Canal is at upper right. Image data obtained on 23 August 2000.
