Congo - June 11th, 2010

The Alima River flows through the middle of this APM (Alternate Polarization Medium resolution) image of the Republic of Congo’s territory. It is an affluent (tributary) on the right bank of the Congo river, which is the largest river in Western Central Africa, with an overall length of 4,700 km (2,920 mi).

The river and its tributaries flow through the Congo rainforest, the second largest rain forest area in the world, second only to the Amazon Rainforest in South America. This image was created by acquiring and combining two signals simultaneously, enhancing the topographical differences.
