Chad - April 15th, 2011

Lake Chad appears as a green area on the left side of this image. It is located on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert and is shared by the countries of Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Cameroon.

In the upper right quadrant, some streaks can be observed in the desert by the Chad-Niger border that are lighter than the rest of the landscape. This is actually airborne dust, blown about by strong winds.
