Image Caption: The early March snow cover is still heavy, and contrasts with the gray city of Orenburg on the Ural River which flows just south of Russia's Ural Mountains. The parallel lines on both sides of the river are lines of trees called shelter belts. They are planted as wind breaks, stretch for hundreds of miles across Russia and Ukraine, and are easily observed from low Earth orbit.
