Africa. In this true-colour composite satellite image, heavily-vegetated areas are green, with drier regions yellow/brown and water black. The island of Madagascar (lower right) lies in the Indian Ocean. The three largest lakes in Africa are (from north to south, at lower right): Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Nyasa. The Sahara Desert runs across the upper frame. This image was produced from data collected by the Thematic Mapper (TM) instrument on an American Landsat Satellite.
