Anti-Atlas mountains. Coloured LANDSAT satellite image of the Anti-Atlas mountains in Morocco, Africa. North is at top. Green vegetation is coloured red. The geology is dominated by the folded Anti-Atlas mountain range (upper centre) running in lines as ridges of resistant rock, with water eroded valleys. The Anti-Atlas range was formed by movement, folding and uplifting at the boundary of the African and Eurasian tectonic plates, although this boundary is fairly static now. Running from bottom left to right is the long ridge of Jbel Ouarkziz. The Atlantic ocean is at top left. Photographed in November.
