Seasonal Landcover Change over the Nile Delta in 2004
Released on October 19, 2005
The Blue Marble Next Generation data set provides a monthly global cloud-free true-color picture of the Earth's land cover at a 500-meter spatial resolution. This visualization of the data set shows seasonal variations such as snowfall, spring greening and droughts in a seamless fashion, thereby heightening awareness of changes in the Earth's climate. Here we focus on the seasonal land cover changes over the Nile Delta. This data set is derived from imagery taken in 2004 by the MODIS instrument on the Terra satellite.
This animation shows seasonal landcover change over the Nile delta in 2004. Three yearly cycles are shown, displayed at a rate of two months per second. This version has a date bar indicating the month being shown.
