Euphrates River, Iraq, infrared satellite image. North is at top. The Euphrates (black) flows from left to right, carving great loops into the land. The central area has since been flooded by the Al Qadisiyah Dam, built in 1988. This 180-kilometre- wide image was taken on 22 November 1972, in visible and infrared wavelengths, with the Multispectral Scanner (MSS) sensor on NASA's Landsat 1 satellite.
