In this Landsat 5 satellite image, what look like pale yellow paint streaks slashing through a mosaic of mottled colors are ridges of wind-blown sand that make up Erg Iguidi, an area of ever-shifting sand dunes extending from Algeria into Mauritania in northwestern Africa.

Algeria is the second largest country in Africa and the 10th largest country in the world. Covering such an immense stretch of landscape, Algeria also is a country of diversity.
