Image Caption: Northwest-looking view of the parallel lines of the
region known as the Kulunda Steppe where a geology dominated by a long
series of parallel lines is a prominent pattern. The Irtysh River lies
along the left side of the view. The city of Semipalatinsk on the
Irtysh is hard to discern in this summer view but railways can be seen
converging on the city (bottom left). The city is prominent in winter
views as a result of city effects such as melted snow, smog and soot.
