Image Caption: The Omo River drains southern Ethiopia and empties into Lake Turkana, Kenya. The delta has grown tremendously since the 1970s, in response to changes in landuse, resulting differences in sediment runoff, and lake level fluctuations. The growth continues to be rapid. The NM22 view is taken with Kodak color infrared film (Kodak 2443), and the red color highlights the thick vegetation growing on the delta. Compare with STS041-76-16 (1990) and note the new lobe of the delta which is building along the western edge of the main delta.
