The predominantly mountainous terrain of the Republic of Turkey is
covered by snow in this Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer
(MODIS) true-color image, produced from data
collected on January 13, 2002. The snow-laced peaks of the Kure Daglari
mountain range in the north can be seen as they range from the
upper middle of the image to the upper right. The mountains parallel the northern
coastline, which opens to the Black Sea. Also visible in this image, at
the bottom right, is the island of Cyprus.
