Caption: River deltas in Borneo, satellite image. North is at top. Three rivers flow into the sea, carrying red silt deposits of sediment, mineral ores and organic matter. These gradually accumulate to form swampy plains. The dark green areas indicate dense tropical rainforest, whereas the lighter areas with the bare red places are parts where deforestation has occurred. The coastal forests around the plains are populated by mangroves, which can live in fresh and salt water.
