True-color image of pivot irrigation circles and irrigation canals that are part of the New Valley Project in Egypt. This image was acquired on November 4, 2022, by the Multi-Spectral Instrument (MSI) aboard the ESA (European Space Agency) Sentinel-2A and -2B satellites. Water is diverted from Lake Nasser, southeast of this image, to irrigate lands near the Toshka Lakes, shown in the upper left of the image. View this image in Worldview.
The imagery available in NASA's Worldview are part of the Harmonized Landsat Sentinel-2 (HLS) project, which provides 30 meter resolution true-color surface reflectance imagery from the Operational Land Imager (OLI) and OLI-2 instruments aboard the joint NASA/USGS Landsat 8 and Landsat 9 satellites and the MSI aboard ESA's Sentinel-2A and -2B satellites. The data from the two instruments aboard the four satellites are processed through a set of algorithms to make the imagery consistent and comparable across the instruments. This includes atmospheric correction, cloud and cloud-shadow masking, spatial co-registration and common gridding, illumination and view angle normalization, and spectral bandpass adjustment.
