Coast of Turkmenistan
The 100 m false-colour image of 7 January 2015 shows us the west-coast of Turkmenistan, a country in Central Asia, bordered by Kazakhstan to the northwest, Uzbekistan to the north and east, Afghanistan to the southeast, Iran to the south and southwest, and the Caspian Sea to the west. The climate is mostly arid subtropical desert, with little rainfall. Winters are mild and dry, with most precipitation falling between January and May. In the image you can see the Karakum desert, which is one of the world's driest places and covers about 80% of the land of Turkmenistan.
