Image Caption: The top of the photograph is Mafia Island, just to the south of
Zanzibar. The large delta on the mainland (1) is from the Great
Rufiji River; the river emptied into the sea to the south some
time ago, evidenced by the abandoned delta (2). Note the burning
areas blowing to the west on mainland Tanzania in the limestone
hills (3). (51-J-43-021)
