Figure 3 These two false-colour satellite images show the enormous size of the lake created by the Ataturk Dam (bottom left) in Turkey on the River Euphrates. This is one of the largest dams in the region, completed in 1990. The images show an area about 175 × 175 km. (a) in 1983, before the dam was built, and (b) in 2002, after the lake had filled. The red areas indicate vegetation.
