Najd, Saudi Arabia
January 23, 2004
This Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) image is centered over the plateau region of Najd located in Saudia Arabia, bounded on the west by the Al Hijaz mountains and on all other sides by desert sands. A curious feature about this image are the irrigated fields shown as grey and black circular patterns at the top and centre left of the image. Bands 7 (red), 5 (green), and 2 (blue), corresponding to visible light, were used to create this image.
