Africa and Europe. True-colour satellite image of Africa and Europe. North is at top. Vegetation is green, arid areas are brown and water is blue. Extensive deserts are seen stretching across northern Africa and the Arabian peninsula. The topography of the ocean floors is clearly shown. The mid-Atlantic ridge (left) is seen as a series of parallel horizontal lines running down the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. Similar features are seen in the Indian Ocean (right), both caused by tectonic activity in the Earth's crust.
