A mosaic of Landsat satellite images of North America. This image shows the main geographical areas of the continent. Dark green represents coniferous vegetation, seen in the north-west and in a belt extending to the Great Lakes in the east. Above this belt is brown Arctic tundra and white permanent ice, with Greenland at top right. Below the coniferous belt are the mottled-brown high deserts in the west, the brown/green prairies of the centre and the lush green pastures and swamplands of the east. The mountain deserts reach down into Mexico in the far south.
