Egypt – January 17th, 2013

A cloud of smoky haze hangs over the eastern Mediterranean Sea, from the edge of the Nile Delta and Suez Canal, in Egypt, past the coastline of the Sinai Peninsula, to the shores of Israel/Palestine. Inland, a stark contrast can be observed between the green of the Nile Delta and Nile River Valley, as well as the Faiyum Oasis (lower left), and the mostly desert terrain flanking the river and on the peninsula.

Haze Over Nile River Valley and Delta, Egypt

January 6th, 2013 Category: Lakes, Rivers

Egypt – January 3rd, 2013

Haze, possibly caused by fires, hangs over the Nile River Valley, Faiyum Oasis and the southern part of the Nile Delta. The city of Cairo, normally visible at the base of the delta, is completely obscured by the haze. Visible, however, are the Suez Canal, east of the delta, and Lake Moeris, on the northwestern edge of the Faiyum Oasis.
