Middle East - March 30th, 2011

Much of the eastern and southern parts of this image, stretching across Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Israel/Palestine, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Syria (counterclockwise from bottom left), appears quite arid.

However, the coastal areas of Israel/Palestine, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey (south to north) show greener, more vegetated land. The valley along the Euphrates River is also vegetated. Other notable features include Lake Assad (above) and the Dead Sea (below).
