Image Caption: STS027-152-087 Aral' Sea: Summer and Winter Views

Summer view (left shows the Aral' from the north. Winter view from
south (top) shows reduced contrast of green croplands on the vast
southside plain of Amu Darya River delta -- and no contrast after
heavy snowfall on Syr Darya delta (enters the Aral' in the northeast
