Caption: Suez Canal. Infrared satellite image of the Suez canal (at centre), Egypt, with parts of the Nile Delta (at left) and Sinai peninsula (at right). North is at top. In the infrared range water appears black, barren areas are yellow & brown, buildings are grey and green vegetation is red. The Suez canal links the Red (at bottom centre) and Mediterranean (at top) seas. At the north end of the canal is Port Said and at the south end is Suez. The canal passes through the salty Great Bitter Lake (at lower centre). The canal provides the fastest route between Europe and Asia. Image taken by the American Landsat satellite.
