Image Caption:
Eastern Brazil Coast; Mouth of the Rio Sao Francisco

The Eastern Brazil Coast, with the mouth of the Rio Sao Francisco
(1) is visible in this spectacular low oblique north-looking
panoramic view. The major coastal cities of Aracaju (2) and Ma-
ceio (3) can also be seen. Closer inspection shows that much of
the area has been deforested from the upland areas situated in-
land from the coast. (S29-85-076, 077, 078, 079)
