Nigeria - July 7th, 2011

This image focuses on the border area by Nigeria (right), Benin (left) and Niger (above). The land in Niger appears significantly more arid than that of its southern neighbors.

Visible in western Nigeria, in the lower right quadrant, is Kainji Lake, a reservoir on the Niger River, formed by the Kainji Dam. The dam generates power for most towns in Nigeria.
