Caption: River Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, satellite image. Formerly known as the Zaire, the Congo is seen flowing through forest (dark green) and swamp land (light green). Salmon pink indicates areas of deforestation, where nothing can grow and the soil is having its fertility leached by water. Primarily these areas are around the river, indicating that in such remote areas it is the primary source of transport, but, at upper left, logging roads can be seen.
