Lake Bamendjing and the Massif du Mbam, Cameroon5.7N 10.5E
Cameroon has four geographic regions. The southern area consists of coastal plains and a densely forested plateau. The central region rises progressively to the north and includes the Adamawa Plateau. This APM image shows Lake Bamendjing, flanked by the mountain Massif du Mbam.
APM (Alternate Polarization Medium resolution) is an ASAR (radar) mode that acquires two signals at the same time, and is therefore able to generate two grayscale images. The resulting image is a combination of those two images, which highlights their similarities and differences.
