China - July 5th, 2010

The city of Shanghai appears as a white area on the Yangtze River Delta on China’s eastern coast. The city itself is bisected by the Huangpu River, a tributary of the Yangtze, visible as a black ribbon through the white.

Several low-lying alluvial islands can be seen north of the city, in the mouth of the Yangtze River. These islands compose Chongming County, the only county under the jurisdiction of Shanghai. The largest three are Chongming Island (biggest, with an area of 1041 km²), Changxing Island and Hengsha Island.
