Image Caption:
Tshuapa River, Southern Zaire River Basin T21

A rare break in the clouds allowed the STS-29 crew in March, 1989
to photograph the land use patterns in the northeastern portion
of the Southern Zaire River Basin Site. Grassland in this region
occurs on the higher ground between the numerous river tribu-
taries and not in the actual river floodplains. The Tshuapa
River traverses the photographs from the bottom left to the top
right. (S29-82-059, 060)
