Pakistan - August 29th, 2010

While the thumbnail image focuses on the Chenab River and the city of Multan, the full image shows more of Pakistan and the Indus River. Both rivers appear brown with sediments and wider than normal due to the devastating floods that have been affecting the country since July.

Multan is situated on the east bank of the Chenab River, appearing here as a greyish circular area in the lower left quadrant. It is located more or less in the geographic centre of Pakistan, in the southern part of the Punjab Province. It is also capital of the Multan District. It is located in the southern part of the province.
