The Florida Everglades
Southern Florida, United States
|The Florida Everglades, often called the “River of Grass,” was created by water flowing towards the southern tip of Florida. Here, infrared wavelengths show vegetation. Colors have been assigned to discern vegetation types, such as bright green for grasses. Cutting across the image is the Tamiami Trail, a highway running west from Miami.
