Nador and Sebkha Bou Areq Lagoon, Morocco - November 18th, 2008

Nador and Sebkha Bou Areq Lagoon, Morocco - November 18th, 2008

In this image of the Rif region in northern Morocco, we can see the semi-circular shaped Sebkha Bou Areq Lagoon, near the city of Nador and the Spanish enclave of Melilla.

The thin strip of land separating the lagoon from the ocean can be reached on foot from Nador and is almost uninhabited.

To the South, we have the Atlas Mountains, the Moulouya River (Oued Moulouya), one of the most important rivers in Morocco, and the lake created by the Mohamed V Dam (Barrage Mohamed V), which provides drinking water and electricity to Nador and the surrounding area.

To the North, along the Mediterranean coast, we can see some trails of phytoplankton reaching out into the sea.
