The Oum Er-Rbia, meaning the mother of spring in Arabic, is a river in central Morocco. The river is 555 km long and is the longest in the country. Here, it can be seen flowing diagonally from northwest to southeast through the image.

With an average water debit of 105 m3/s, Oum Er-Rbia is the second largest river in Morocco after the Sebou River. It has its source in the Middle Atlas Mountains and passes through the city of Kenitra and comes in the Atlantic Ocean in Azemmour.

Oum Er-Rbia has eight dams, the most important of which is Almassira Dam. These dams have created reservoirs such as the large one visible on the right side of this image.
