Caption

Grand Canyon. Infrared satellite image of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, USA. North is at top. In the infrared range green vegetation is red, for- ests are brown, bare rock appears as shades of grey and water is black. Image of the lower reach- es of the Canyon with the Sanup Plateau appearing brown at centre right. The Canyon was formed during the last 6 million years due to erosion by the Colorado River which flows from top centre to upper left. The Canyon is 6-29 km wide and 1.6 km deep, exposing many, multi-coloured layers of faulted, sedimentary rock. Image taken by the French SPOT-3 satellite in June.
