Image Caption:
STS038-84-048: RIVER PLUMES, NORTHWEST BORNEO Color visible pho-
tograph of turbidity plumes in the South China Sea along the
north coast of Borneo (Malaysia; 4.7! N, 111.6! E). The photo
was taken during STS-38 on November 19, 1990. The turbidity pat-
terns present clues about local currents and the interaction of
the buoyant river plumes with the denser sea water.
