The dark green areas in this image of arid central Australia are the rivers of the nation’s Channel Country. Several salt lakes and salt pans appear as whitish areas near the rivers.

In the lower part of the image is Lake Eyre, an ephemeral lake that fills when heavy rains from the north flow through the rivers of Channel Country and pour into the Lake Eyre Basin.
