  STS056-110-081 Anderson Bay, Tasmania, Australia April 1993
Although some clouds obscure parts of this color infrared image, Anderson Bay in northeast Tasmania is visible near the center of the picture. Notice the numerous, paralleling, linear white features along the east side of Anderson Bay coastline as well as the southeast shoreline of Noland Bay immediately west of Anderson Bay. These are sandy beaches and exposed sandy areas slightly inland from the beaches. The alignment of these sandy dunes indicates that the wind blows predominately from west to east across the landscape. The lighter, reddish terrain shows pastures and cultivated fields, while the darker, more uniformly colored areas are forested. Waterhouse Island is located northeast of Anderson Bay (right middle).
