Geographic Region: USA-NORTH CAROLINA

STS034-083-067 Pamlico River, North Carolina, U.S.A. October 1989
The east-southeast-flowing Pamlico River, shown here as a wide estuary, is visible as it empties into Pamlico Sound along the east coast of North Carolina. The broad estuary of the much shorter Pungo River can be seen as it flows into the north side of the Pamlico River near its mouth. The light colored area in the center of the image is an operating phosphate mine and a single runway. Most of the lighter colored landscape, consisting of angular shaped field patterns, are used for agriculture; while the darker terrain tends to be extensive woodlands.
