This image shows the total suspended matter of Africa’s Lake Chad as derived from the Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) instrument aboard the Envisat satellite in November 2007. The re-filling of the lake by the Chari River from the south brings in turbulent waters and increases suspended matter, as demonstrated in this image.
