Erosion gullies in southern and central Angola


Description:

Erosion gullies in southern and central Angola.

Summary / Notes:

These are line segments traced over apparent erosion gullies identified in high resolution (0.5 metre) pixel images available in Google Earth and Bing. The images were largely taken between 2015 and 2017, and so the data set is representative of the distribution of erosion gullies during that time period. The mapping covered the catchments within Angola of the Cunene, Cubango, Cuito, Cuando and Zambezi rivers. However, gullies within the Bulozi floodplain and east of there to the Zambian border were not mapped. The data were compiled by RAISOB for projects to assemble a profile of south-west Angola (funded by the Angolan Sovereign Fund) and information on the Cubango, Cuito, Cuando and Zambezi river catchments (funded by The Nature Conservancy, World Wildlife Fund, Okavango Wild Bird Trust and National Geographic).rnThe data may be used and distributed freely. However, it would be appreciated if copies of any new or improved data on erosion gullies could be sent and shared with RAISON.
