Photographed in the infrared range, green vegetation is red. North is at top.

Iraq is north of the Gulf; Kuwait is at south, including Boubiyan Island at centre left. In the desert, roads are seen, and oil drilling activities on the surface as this is near Umm Qasr oil installation. A canal with vegetation on its banks is at upper right.
