Description:

Portraying the geophysiology of the Okavango Delta, Botswana.

Summary / Notes:

The article presents the application of remote sensing for capturing hydrological and ecosystem patterns and processes (geophysiology) of the Okavango inland delta in Botswana. The Delta is fed by the Okavango River and its tributaries in Angola that passes through Namibia and spreads out as an alluvial fan (delta) over the Kalahari sand until only a small stream remains. Geomorphology.
