Image Caption: This view of the Ennedi Plateau (18.0N, 24.0E) shows the effects of severe wind erosion on this desert landscape in the far eastern portion of the Sahara Desert. The dark areas are lava flows, the calderas have long ago been eroded by the desert winds. The red toned surrounding surfaces are thick tropical soils, remnants of much earlier times when this region was a much greener savanna landscape that have also been severly eroded.
