Libya - October 3rd, 2011

This orthorectified image shows part of the coastline of Libya, from the border with Tunisia near Djerba (upper left corner) to beyond Tripoli. At 1,770 kilometres (1,100 mi), Libya’s coastline is the longest of any African country bordering the Mediterranean.

The climate is mostly dry and desertlike in nature, with most of the country covered by the Libyan Desert. However, the northern regions enjoy a milder Mediterranean climate.
