Image Caption: Nile River Margin, Egypt
New agricultural development that extends into the desert to the west of the heavily cultivated darker looking region of the Nile River Delta (bottom left and center of the image) can be seen in this near-vertical view. This newly developing agricultural region located to the northwest of the city of Cairo, has been expanding since the mid- to late- 1990's. Center pivot irrigation fields (circular) are visible at the right center of the image. The Rosetta (Rashid) River can be seen meandering from south to north (left to right) at the bottom of the image.
