Caption: Satellite image of Africa showing the Mediterranean at top, the Arabian Peninsula at upper right and Madagascar at lower right. Lake Victoria and the lakes along the Great Rift Valley stand out as black shapes below right of centre. Notice also the thick cloud cover visible over the areas of tropical rainforest around the Congo. The picture is actually a mosaic of images made by Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) equipment onboard a NOAA satellite. These satellites follow polar orbits and provide information for weather forecasting, snow and ice monitoring and sea surface temperature measurement.
