Land Use Practices

A large reservoir on the Rio So Francisco is surrounded by the
dissected shrub plateau of Sierra des Dois Irmaos in Bahia, Bra-
zil. This area is poorly mapped and has been suffering from four
consecutive years of drought. Scientists are interested in sur-
face water resources of this region. Space Shuttle photography
assists in documenting new water distribution/irrigation pro-
jects, regional deforestation, and land use practices. (41B-46-
