Image Caption:
Babar Island, east of Timor between the Banda Sea and the Timor
Sea. The elongate small island is southeast of Babar. This pair
of photographs, taken 44 seconds apart (about 175 NM, 320 KM) il-
lustrates an effective use of sunglint. The island wake, which is
a difference in sea-surface roughness caused either by wind ac-
tion or current action or both, obviously has a different reflec-
tance when viewed from different directions. Internal waves that
border the island wake propagating from west to east are dif-
fracted by the island; much smaller wind waves extend east- west
at right angles to the swell. Turbulent "interference-like" wakes
are well-displayed downstream from Dai and Daweloor Islands,
northeast of Babar. S33-75-028, S33-75-031.
