Seasonal Surface Changes in Namibia and Central Angola
April 2, 2003
Brightness variations in the terrain along a portion of southwestern Africa are displayed in these views from the Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR). The panels portray an area that includes Namibia's Skeleton Coast and Etosha National Park as well as Angola's Cuando Cubango. The top panels were acquired on March 6, 2001, during the region's wet season, and the bottom panels were acquired on September 1, 2002, during the dry season. Corresponding changes in the abundance of vegetation are apparent.
