Plastic greenhouses cover a stretch of shoreline on the south coast of Crete — the largest and most populous of the Greek islands. Inside these greenhouses, which cover an area of roughly 6 square miles (15 sq. km), large quantities of fruits and vegetables are grown for export. In the upper right corner of this Overview is the Bramiana Reservoir, which was built in 1986 to meet the needs of the thousands of greenhouses surrounding it.
