Detailed Description

Photographs from 1994 and 2010 show the expansion of vegetation in Senegal. The images are included in the U.S. Geological Survey Earth Resources Observation and Science Center book "Landscapes of West Africa: A Window on a Changing World." Geographer G. Gray Tappan used rephotography of sites across West Africa over the span of three decades to inform the work included in the atlas.
