Remote sensing for interpretations of soil-plant interactions as indicators of desertification in western Africa



Remote sensing for interpretations of soil-plant interactions as indicators of desertification in western Africa



Arid lands plant resources: proceedings of the international arid lands conference on plant resources, Texas Tech University: 629-649



Several pairs of Landsat images illustrate certain detrimental changes which occurred in the Sahel of West Africa: decreased moisture and vegetation cover (in an area inhabited by nomads), reduced flood-recession vegetation on the Senegal River flood plain, an increase in destructive burning of rangelands (to clear land or initiate fresh vegetation growth), and an increase in soil salinization.
