This sandy image of the Sahara, captured by Japan’s ALOS satellite, shows evidence of a wetter time.

Satellites provide the perfect way to capture images of the Sahara as well as to observe and monitor such barren and hostile landscapes, where the heat and lack of water make them unwelcome to other means of measurement.

In this image, a large area of rock appearing purple stretches across the right side of the image, with fluvial erosion patterns testament to an earlier time when the area received more rainfall. Today, this area sees an average of about 10 mm of rainfall per year.

Japan’s ALOS satellite recorded this image on Jan. 28, 2011, and it’s being shared by the European Space Agency. The agency uses its multimission ground systems to acquire, process, distribute and archive data from the satellite.

The desolate nature of deserts, with constantly changing dunes due to wind, provide striking images of areas not favorable to human habitation.
