Image Caption: 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.
