Qingdao, China, in eastern Shandong province is a major cultural center as well as one of China’s main hubs for marine science and technology.

In this image, various aquacultures are visible along the coast of the bay, including the farming of fish, crustaceans, mollusks and aquatic plants. Toward the top of the image is the Jihongtan Reservoir, which is right of the Dagu River. Owing to image processing, vegetation appears in reds scattered throughout the scene, showing how fertile and lush the region is.
