Additional Details
Description: The Beni River in Bolivia resembles a blue ribbon as it meanders toward the Amazon RIver. Scatterd along the river are numerous oxbow lakes, which are curved bodies of water that form when a meander from the main stem of a river is cut off, creating a freestanding body of water. Dark green colors in the image indicate forest and lighter green shades indicate grassland or sparse forest.

Earth as Art 4 (EAA4) comprises 37 stunning images captured by Landsat 8, the newest Landsat Program satellite.

Landsat satellites acquire detailed views of the Earth's surface that scientists use to determine how our planet's landscapes are changing over time. In addition to their scientific value, however, many Landsat images are simply lovely to look at.
