Flooded rivers (image 2 of 2). Coloured three- dimensional computer image, based on satellite data, of three US rivers in flood. They are the Missouri (across centre), the Mississippi (upper left) and the Illinois (top centre). North is towards top. Bare soil (red) shows where the flood waters (dark blue) have receded. Vegetation is green. The record rainfall of summer 1993 caused the flooding. The image was produced from data collected on 14 August and 7 November 1993 by the Thematic Mapper on the US Landsat 5 satellite, along with USGS terrain elevation data. For the rivers before the flood see image E160/125.
