Earthshots: Satellite images of environmental change – Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Earthshots introduces remote sensing by showing examples of how environmental changes look from space.
From 1975 to 1978, Cambodia was ruled by the Khmer Rouge regime, which sought among other things to build a vast system of irrigation canals. These images show an area around Cambodia's capital city of Phnom Penh where such waterworks were built. Many areas east of the Mekong River show a gridwork of canals by 1985.
