This Envisat (IMM) radar image was acquired over Baluchistan (region), in the southwestern part of Pakistan (Asia). It is a generally mountainous region, cut through with deserts and barren plains. The image shows the area along the coast in front of the Gulf of Oman in the Arabian Sea. The black patterns in the bay are due to sea currents. The white line in the lower portion of the image is the trail made by a ship (seen as a white dot towards the border of the image).
