Caption

The Mediterranean Sea, from space. Mosaic of satellite images showing the region around the Mediterranean Sea. The sea forms a boundary between the largely green and fertile south of Europe (top) and the yellows and browns of arid North Africa and the Middle East. The sea occupies a tectonic boundary between the Eurasian and African plates. Extensive mountain building has resulted, including the Alps (top centre) and the Atlas Mountains (centre left). Volcanoes are still active in Italy and Sicily (centre), whilst earthquakes are common in Turkey (centre right). The data for this image were gathered by NOAA weather satellites.
