Caption: Kuwait City. Infrared satellite image of Kuwait City (at lower right), capital city of Kuwait. North is at top. In the infrared range buildings are white/grey, bare ground is yellow/brown, clear water is black, water with sediment is blue, clouds are white and green vegetation is red. The city's airport is to its south. Kuwait City's main product is petroleum and related products, though it is also a major port and financial centre. The money generated by the petroleum industry has been used to make Kuwait City one of the most modern in the Middle East. Image taken by the French SPOT-1 satellite in March
