STS062-086-107 Mississippi River Floodplain, Arkansas, U.S.A. March 1994
Sunglint, the sun's reflection off water surfaces, helps to identify exposed water surfaces. Apparent are cultivated agricultural field patterns throughout the flat, fertile Mississippi River floodplain and old meander scars and oxbow lakes along the river's main channel. Greenville (barely discernible) is situated on the east bank of the Mississippi River (near the center of the photograph). The darker area (bottom right) is slightly elevated, forested terrain.
