Image Caption: STS028-87-059 Compare this photograph of the Ural River Delta with the
1985 photographs. Although the water level is slightly higher, white
patches around the coast suggest that evaporation is a key element of
coastal processes. However, rapid water level rises in 1994 flooded
this region and threatened much of the industry infrastructure (roads,
etc.) in this region. W21
