Image Caption: STS033-079-035 Cambridge Gulf, Western Australia, Australia November 1989
Sediment-laden Cambridge Gulf can be seen emptying into the southwest corner of the much larger Joseph Bonaparte Gulf onthe north coast of Australia . Much of this coastal zone consists of saline tidal flats (lighter colored, grayish looking area). Several short flowing rivers drain into the Cambridge Gulf bringing water and light brown sediment from the Kimberley Plateau south of the gulf. Several distributary channels of the Ord River are visible (left center part of image) where the river discharges into the southeast side of Cambridge Gulf.
