Caption

Landsat image of the Ganges delta, Bangladesh. The image was recorded in February, at the end of the dry season. North is to the top. The red areas are dry-season crops, almost ready to harvest; to the south, the pale blue areas dotted with red are regions being prepared for rice planting; to the southwest, the greenish areas are infertile swamp land. The River Ganges flows from India to the west; the river that joins it from the north is the Brahmaputra. The Ganges Delta changes shape from year to year; the blue tone at the river mouth is due to the huge volumes of sediment being carried into the Bay of Bengal.
