These true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images from southern Africa show numerous fires (red dots) burning in Angola and surrounding countries in September 2002. Angola is at left in the images, and the highly dendritic plateau region is carved by flowing water. Zambia is to the east, and Botswana is to the south. The broomstick-shaped delta in Botswana is the Okavango Delta.
