Syria - December 2nd, 2008

Lake Assad (Buhayrat al Assad), on the right, is a reservoir created by the construction of the Tabaqah Dam on the Euphrates River, upstream from the town of Ar Raqqah, Syria. It is a body of water about 80 kilometers long and averaging eight kilometers in width.

There is green vegetation along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. North, roughly parallel to the Gulf of ─░skenderun, is a brown colored range known as the Nur Mountains.

The green area from the end of the Nur Mountains heading north, belongs to Turkey (although this land is in dispute). The green coastal land south of the Nur Mountains and the brown inland region belong to Syria.

Some of the terrain across the Syrian border looks reddish; this is due to agriculture. These reddish areas appear dotted by small tan circles, which are actually small towns.
