Farming in the Saudi Arabian desert
Today’s Video of the Day comes courtesy of the European Space Agency (ESA) and features a look at how farming in the Saudi Arabian desert is made possible.
The images, taken from the Copernicus Sentinel satellites, reveal crop fields in the middle of Saudi Arabia’s Wadi As-Sirhan basin. These crops are irrigated by ancient water reserves, also called fossil water, that were formed thousands of years ago when this area received much more rainfall.
