View Original Image at Full Size

Figure 1: This picture is a satellite image, taken from space, of the San Francisco Bay (Bay) and Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The colors in this image all represent different land cover and land uses. Open water is shown in blue. Many of the dark green areas adjacent to the Bay waters are either natural or man-made wetlands that are fully or partially flooded by the tides on a regular basis. The orange and light yellow colored areas in the South Bay and North Bay are salt ponds, separated from the Bay by levees and formerly used for salt production. The grey areas are residential, urban, and commercial development.
