Caption: Betsiboka estuary, Madagascar, satellite image. 20th century deforestation has resulted in massive soil erosion, causing the waters of the estuary (centre) to run yellow from soil washed down by the heavy rains. This has led to extensive sedimentation in the river, impeding and preventing the passage of ships.
