Caption

Great Rift Valley. Infrared satellite image of part of the Great Rift Valley. North is at top. In infrared light, green vegetation is red, water is blue/black, bare ground & buildings are light blue. The Rift Valley is a 4830-kilometre depress- ion between Syria and Mozambique. It was caused by the sinking of rocks which lay over a fault in the Earth's crust during a 50 million year period. Image of the Rift Valley near Solai (at upper right), Kenya, which lies almost on the equator. This is the highest section of the Rift Valley, the floor being over 1500 metres above sea level. Image taken by the SPOT-1 satellite in February.
