Countries shown are (clockwise from top right) Mali, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Senegal, and Gambia. The high-resolution image provided above is 500 meters per pixel. The MODIS Rapid Response System provides this image at MODIS’ maximum spatial resolution of 250 meters. Credit: Image courtesy Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA GSFC
