Yangtzee River

 (JPG) Yangtzee River (2,589,435 bytes) ( 3,300 x 3,250 )
These ASTER images show a 60 km stretch of the Yangtze River in China just west of the Three Gorges Dam, the world‘«÷s largest. When the reservoir is filled in 2012, water will rise to a height of 175 meters, and extend 600 kilometers. The reservoir will submerge two of the three world-famous gorges. The dam is being built to control the flooding of the Yangtze River, that has killed thousands of people in the past. The top image was acquired on May 20, 2001 during the dam‘«÷s construction and before the reservoir was filled. The bottom image from March 25, 2003 shows the partial filling of the reservoir, including numerous side canyons. The image is centered at 31 degrees north latitude, 110.5 degrees east longitude.
