Landsat 8 Satellite Image (15m) Land of Terror
October 14, 2014
No water. No vegetation. No oasis. Known as the “Land of Terror,” the Tanezrouft Basin in Algeria is one of the most desolate parts of the Sahara Desert. Sand dunes, which appear in yellow, streak down the left side of the image, and sandstone formations carved by relentless wind erosion make concentric loops, much like the grain seen in a piece of wood.
