DescriptionEnglish: Israel-Egypt-Gaza border region
A clearly visible line marks about 50 kilometers of the international border between Egypt and Israel in this astronaut photograph from the International Space Station. The reason for the color difference is likely a slightly higher level of grazing by the Bedouin-tended animal herds on the Egyptian side of the border. A major highway also follows the borderline, making the demarcation more prominent in this image. A patch of the Gaza Strip appears under scattered clouds at image left.
The image shows how the active sand dunes, which dominate most of the landscape in this view, mark the southern limit of the agriculture. In the arid to semiarid climate of the region, the natural grass vegetation is sparse at best. Irrigated commercial agriculture in Israel appears as a series of large angular patterns and circular center pivot fields. Darker greens indicate actively growing crops (image left). Smaller plot sizes appear on the Egyptian side of the border at image lower left.
