Image Caption:
Bedform sand streaks in the Gilf Kebir Plateau-Uweinat Mountains
region of the desert of southwest Egypt. In this southeast-
looking view, the oval of dark rock at the top is Gebel Oweinat,
where the international borders of Egypt, the Sudan, and Libya
meet. Large sand streaks can be seen winding between this and
other dark massifs. Sandless areas (erosion streaks) of inter-
mediate albedo between these sand sheets are of the same size and
shape as many streaks identified on the surface of Mars. NASA
