DEIMOS-1 Image of the week (acquired 03/02/2015): Banc d’Arguin National Park
The southern part of Banc d’Arguin National Park in Mauritania is pictured in this false color DEIMOS-1 image acquired on 3 February 2015. The parc was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1989. Situated on the atlantic coast, the park comprises sand dunes, coastal swamps, small islands, and shallow coastal waters. The contrast between the harsh desert environment and the biodiversity of the marine zone has resulted in a land- and seascape of outstanding natural significance.
