  STS069-728-79 Roper River, Northern Territory, Australia September 1995
The meandering channel of the Roper River (center of image) flows into Limmen Bight, located along the southwest shoreline of the Gulf of Carpentaria. The floodplain of the Roper River widens at the coast to include the large, tan-colored area surrounding the river mouth. The lower floodplain is well defined from the darker, more heavily vegetated uplands. River flow increases greatly during the summer rainy season. In this view, the muddy color of the river indicates that the river delivers a large supply of sediment to the coast.
