Arctic and Eurasia. True-colour satellite image of Eurasia and the Arctic. The North Pole is at upper centre. Water is blue, vegetation is green and arid areas are brown. The snow and ice (white) of the Arctic regions extend south over Greenland (upper left). Europe (lower right) and Asia (at right) make up Eurasia. The apparent distortion is due to the curvature of the Earth's surface. The snow-capped peaks of the Himalayan mountain range (lower right) and part of North America (top left) are seen, as well as the contours of the sea bed.
