Asia. Satellite image centred on Asia, with nearly all of Africa (down left) and Europe (upper left) seen. This image shows the curvature of the Earth, with north-south lines converging towards top. Water is blue, vegetation is green, arid areas are brown, and snow and ice are white. The terrain of Asia varies from deserts (brown, central and southern Asia), to tropical rainforests (dark green, South-East Asia and the Malay Archipelago), to grasslands, forests and tundra (lighter green, northern Asia), and mountain ranges (centre). Also seen is the Arctic (top), Alaska (top right), and the Pacific Ocean (right) and Indian Ocean (lower left). For this area at night, see E074/053.
