Morocco and Algeria - April 14th, 2010

This image stretches across Morocco to Algeria, from fertile green coastal areas to the sandy dunes of the Sahara Desert. The Strait of Gibraltar is also visible in the upper left corner.

The dunes of the desert areas are in the upper part of the Grand Erg Occidental (also known as the Western Sand Sea), the second largest erg in northern Algeria, after the Grand Erg Oriental.
