Image Caption:
The Northern Sudd Swamp T28

This near-vertical view taken in January 1990, shows the White
Nile where it leaves the Sudd Swamp and bends to the east before
turning northward once again on its journey to the Mediterranean
Sea. Numerous smaller streams enter the Nile from this point
northward. Flow of the river from this point also increases.
During times of seasonal flooding, all of the river floodplain
(upper right) may be flooded. At the time this view was taken,
islands and mud or sand bars were visible. (S32-94-033)
