Caption: Landsat photograph of the city of Cairo and the Nile delta. The black thread of the river Nile can be seen surrounded by a thin strip of red vegetation which opens into the wide mouth of the delta. Cairo is visible as the light blue area at the head of the delta, just before the river forks into the Rosetta Nile (left) and the Damietta Nile (right). Light blue areas in the delta are other cities. Agriculture in the delta relies on irrigation & consists of cotton, corn & clover. Lake Qarun, lying in El Faiyum Depression, is at bottom left of the image. Extensive agriculture extends from the lake almost to the River Nile.
