Image Caption: STS41-83-059 and 060, & 062 Parana River Basin. These color
photographs collected in a near-vertical look angle using a 250 mm
lens shows part of the large floodplain. Large islands are scattered
within the river system at this point near the city of Posadas just
off the center right of the scene. The brownish, silty appearance of
the Rio Parana is visible. New highway and bridge construction
activities can be seen along the north side of the river.
