Signs of land degradation can be seen around settlements in central Sudan in this satellite image. The round, brighter beige shapes indicate areas where vegetation has been largely or completely stripped due to intensive land use. As a consequence of this land use and soil erosion, agricultural fields had to be moved farther away from the villages. These fields are visible as white, yellow and brown spots towards the edges of the image.
