Image Caption: South Florida
The city of Miami encroaches the eastern edge of the Everglades in
Florida. The Everglades is an International Biosphere Reserve World
Heritage Site. This subtropical wilderness encompasses a relatively flat
(does not exceed 2.4 m above sea level) saw-grass marsh region of 10,000
sq km (4,000 sq miles). The only source of water in the Everglades is
from rainfall. The flow of water is detectable in this image, slowly
moving from Lake Okeechobee to Florida Bay; the light blue, shallow area
(less than 3 m) between the mainland and the Keys; and the southwestern
Florida coast.
