Mauritania, Senegal and Guinea-Bissau - February 11th, 2011

The Senegal River flows westward towards the Atlantic Ocean across the upper part of this image. Appearing as a greenish line admist the arid Sahara Desert lands, it also marks the border between Mauritania (above) and Senegal (below).

Continuing south, past the Cape Vert Peninsula protuding out into the Atlantic, one comes to the Geba River in Guinea-Bissau. Tan sediments can be seen spilling from the its mouth into the ocean. The lower right quadrant of the image appears hazy, probably due to smoke from agricultural fires.
