Ancient Eridu and its Sebkhas (satellite images)
- Some may have an interest in some satellite images revealing the presence at times of four sebkhas about ancient Sumerian Eridu, in Sumerian myth, supposedly the first city. Satellite images in different seasons and years reveal, 1, 2, 3, and 4 sebkhas surrounding Eridu (these sebkhas are freshwater lakes created by a flooding Euphrates River). On occasion these 4 Sebkhas can unite into one very huge sebkha as in the 1997 image. Click on the below url and scroll to its bottom for the photos if the subject interests you.
