Sand Dunes, Mountains and Reservoirs in Western Algeria31.6N 2.1W
This image of western Algeria is divided in half by a long, curving mountain range. These mountains, running from north to south through the center, reach heights of over 1400 meters to the north and gradually decrease to 800 meters to the south.
To the east of the mountains lies an expanse of sand dunes, some of which reach heights of 600 meters.
To the west lies an artificial reservoir by the town of Djorf Torba. East of the reservoir is the city of Béchar, the capital of Béchar Province, appearing here as a grey area at the foot of the mountains.
