Gulf of Aden Separating Yemen and Somalia12.5N 48.2E
This image shows the southern coast of Yemen (above), with a small section of the southern coast of Oman visible in the upper right corner.
Those two countries, on the Arabian Peninsula, are separated from Somalia (below) by the Gulf of Aden. Visible off the coast of Somalia, near the right edge, is the island of Socotra. Some of the land near the lower left corner belongs to Ethiopia.
Most of the terrain is arid desert. The light tan terrain in Yemen is part of the sandy desert of the Rub’ al Khali. Some green vegetation is visible, however, in Somalia along the slopes of the Surud Mountain Range, parallel to the coast.
