Image Caption:
S36-152-088: Nile Delta, Suez, Sinai, Israel This points out the
Sinai, Lower Egypt and the Nile, the Suez, the center-pivot irri-
gation fields there between the Suez and the Damietta (or east)
branch of the Nile. Note also the plume of light-blue water from
the Nile heading towards Israel. In most Shuttle photography
from past missions, this plume is not present. It indicates that
a large release of water is coming downstream from Lake Nasser, a
phenomenon I have not previously seen since the building of the
Aswan Dam.
