MERIS Level 1B Full Resolution data obtained by EnviSat at 07:38 on 26 December 2003.

This image has been prepared for use in the Bilko on-line tutorial, and contains only MERIS band 5 (560 nm, green) - a good choice for looking at water concentrations of suspended particles (phytoplankton cells or sediment). In clear water it can also be used to identify areas of shallow water. The image also contains several smaller lakes, and a good, cloud-free view of both savannah and forest areas to the east.
