This false-color satellite image vividly displays the large amount of sediment violet , carried from as far away as the Himalayas, that precipitates when it abruptly encounters the sea. The delta is largely covered with a swamp forest known as the Sunderbans, which is home to the Royal Bengal Tiger. Image courtesy of USGS. Introduction :: Bangladesh.
