Captured on 14 April 2018 by the Copernicus EU #Sentinel-2A satellite, this image shows western Pakistan and an important wetland area. It shows a fragmented coast, part of the Indus River Delta. The Indus River, visible on the right, veers through the Sindh Province and is one of the longest rivers in the world, rising in Tibet and flowing around 3000 km before emptying into the Arabian Sea. The delta consists of creeks, swamps, marshes and the seventh largest mangrove forest in the world.
