This MODIS image from May 17, 2002, shows the Volga River running north-south and emptying into the Caspian Sea. At lower left, extensive cultivation of the land can be seen in the regular patterns of fields. The light-colored waters of the Caspian Sea may be due to high sediment in the rivers that flow into it, as well as pollution and aquatic plant growth.
