This false color ASTER image is more aesthetic than the true colors of the delta formed as the Colorado River empties into the Gulf of California. The delta is suffering erosion because the Hoover and Glen Canyon Dams are preventing sediment from the upper reaches of the Colorado River from passing downstream of the dams. A similar problem affects the Nile River downriver of the Aswan Dams.
