Great Sandy Desert

In a small corner of the vast Great Sandy Desert in Western Australia, large sand dunes -- the only sand in this desert of scrub and rock -- appear as lines stretching from left to right. The light-colored fan shapes are scars from wildfires. This image was acquired by Landsat 7s Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) sensor on August 22, 2000. This is a false-color composite image made using near infrared, red, and blue wavelengths. The image has also been sharpened using the sensors panchromatic band.
