India and Pakistan

February 20, 2008

This image of India and Pakistan was captured by the MODIS on the Aqua satellite on February 14, 2008. On the left side of the image is the Indus River. The Indus River drains into the Arabian Sea - there is some sediment visible there, where the waters mix. The India/Pakistan border is just east of Indus River, with Pakistan to the west and India to the east. East of the Indus are patches of white, which are the salt flats in Gujarat, India.

Cutting across the top right corner is the Ganges River - just west of the river is a large circular gray patch, which is the city of New Delhi. Along the Ganges and east of it, gray smog sits along the foothills of the Himalayas, trapped there by the height of the mountains.
