Image Caption:
Gulf of Guayaquil, Ecuador Coast

The Southern Ecuador Coast and the Gulf of Guayaquil are visible
in this near vertical view taken in March 1989. Few photographs
from space exist of the Ecuador and Colombia Pacific Coast north
of the Gulf of Guayaquil. Sediment plumes can be seen at the
upper left of the view near the town of Tumbes, Peru. Sediment
is coming from the foothills of the Northern Peruvian Andes Moun-
tains. Ocean patterns, much like internal waves, can be seen at
the top of the photograph. (S29-85-087)
