Senegal savannah - 2010

Detailed Description

A savannah south of Kaffrine in central Senegal, photographed in 2010 by U.S. Geological Survey Scientist G. Gray Tappan as part of his work on West African land cover. Tappan had previously photographed the scene in 1994. Rephotography of multiple areas over three decades informed the work published in the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science Center book "Landscapes of West Africa: A Window on a Changing World."
