Ugab River, Namibia

 (JPG) Ugab River, Namibia (1,816,566 bytes) ( 2,886 x 2,319 )
Elusive, but ecologically vital, Namibia‘«÷s Ugab River only flows above ground for a few days each year. The subterranean waters underlying this ephemeral river, however, are shallow enough in places to fill hollows and sustain a wildlife population that includes the rare desert elephant. In this image, the river passes through nearly vertical layers of thinly bedded limestone, sandstone, and siltstone. This band 7-3-1 composite image was acquired December 25, 2000, covers an area of 34.8 x 43.3 km, and is centered near 20.8 degrees south, 14.3 degrees east.
