Nation Image Climate summery Sahel state or Sénégal River Area state
Eritrea Eritrea sat.png Eritrea is mostly covered in Sahel in the north east savannah and desert in the south west. There is a desert strip along Red Sea coast, cooler and wetter central highlands and semiarid in western hills and lowlands. The climate is temperate in the mountains and hot in the lowlands. The Satellite images of these states are generated from raster graphics data supplied by The Map Library Sahel
Sudan Sudan sat.jpg North Sudan straddles the Sahara, with only the Nile valley being available to agriculture, while South Sudan has got more tropical savannah and Sahel eco-regions. Sahel
Chad Chad sat.jpg Chad is divided into three distinct zones, from the Sudanese savanna in the south, the Sahel in the central belt and the Sahara Desert in the north. The most fertile land is around Lake Chad. Sahel
Burkina Faso Burkina sat.png The vegetation in the south west of Burkina Faso is rather more lush, while the Sudan region, tropical savannah, Sahel lay in the middle and the fringes of the Sahara are encroaching on the north. Sahel
Niger Niger sat.png Niger is located mostly in the Sahara desert save for a a small peace of tropical savannah around the River Niger and Sahel in the southern most quarter of it's territory. Sahel
Mali Mali sat.png About two thirds of Mali is located in the Sahara desert, exempt for the south eastern third, which contains both a Sahel zone and fertile tropical savannah around the River Niger. Sahel
Mauritania Mauritania sat.png Mauritania is located mostly in the Sahara desert save for a small peace of tropical savannah and Sahel around the River Senegal in approximately the southern most quater of it's territory. |As a result of extended, severe drought, the desert has been expanding since the mid-1960s. To the west, between the ocean and the plateaus, are alternating areas of clayey plains (regs) and sand dunes (ergs), some of which shift from place to place, gradually moved by high winds. Sahel state and Sénégal River Area
Senegal Senegal sat.png Senegal has a both sahel, Sahel-Soudan, Sudan_(region), Soudan-Guinea, tropical rainforest, and Guinean mangroves [1]. Most of the southern Casamance arm of the country has been classified by the World Wildlife Fund as part of the Guinean forest-savanna mosaic ecoregion. Sahel state and Sénégal River Area
Guinea Guinea sat.png Guinea has both lowland belt running north to south behind the coast (Lower Guinea), which is part of the Guinean forest-savanna mosaic ecoregion; the pastoral Fouta Djallon highlands (Middle Guinea); the northern fertile (Upper Guinea); and a south-eastern rain-forest region (Forest Guinea). Sahel state and Sénégal River Area
Algeria Algeria sat.jpg The costal quarter has a Mediterranean climate, while the rest is either desert or semi-desert. There is a strip of Sahel running in the far south and the climate is cooler in the mountain regions Sahel
Nigeria Nigeria sat.png Nigeria is covered by rain forests over the southern two thirds, Guinean forest-savanna mosaic in the middle third and both savannahs and Sahel in the northern third. The montane land is also found in the mountains near the Cameroonian border.) Both the forest zone and the savannah zone are divided into three parts.[2] Some of the forest zone's most southerly portion, especially around the Niger River and Cross River deltas, is mangrove swamp (see Central African mangroves). North of this is fresh water swamp, containing different vegetation from the salt water mangrove swamps, and north of that is rain forest.[2] Sahel
