  STS058-088-078 Ohio River, Parkersburg, West Virginia October 1993
The Ohio River community of Parkersburg (center of image) can be seen in this northwest-looking, low-oblique view. The Ohio River traverses the image from the right edge (northeast) to the left (southwest), separating the states of Ohio (upper portion of the image) from West Virginia (lower portion of the image). This region is part of the Appalachian Plateau, with low, forested hills cut by many narrow valleys. This area is an important coal-mining region, and Parkersburg is an industrial and shipping center for the region.
