Mahavavay River, Madagascar

Mahavavay River, Madagascar

The Mahavavay River flows through northern Madagascar and exits along the northwestern coast. Two settlements -- Sitampiky and Sarodrano -- are in this image, each a small agricultural village. The blood red coloring and vascular structures in this image can be attributed to the high reflectance of near-infrared by dense and leafy vegetation that is concentrated in valley centers.
