Image Caption:
Aswan Dam, Lake Nasser T42

The Aswan Dam (1) and Lake Nasser are shown in these two photo-
graphs taken in September 1988. Water levels in the lake de-
creased in the decade of the 1980's by as much as 30 meters. Old
shorelines (2) are scattered throughout the scene. Sand streaks
(3) at the top of the mosaic show wind directions of strong
modern winds, here from the north. It appears tht the Nile
catches much of this moving sand since the streaks do not every-
where continue on the downwind side of the Nile. (S26-42-003,
