Image Caption:
STS042-73-014 & 017 Ice Flow in the Gulf of Olyutorskiy on the
Northern Coast of Kamchatka STS042-73-014 depicts an in-
teresting flow of pack ice around the Olyutorskiy [Pat--
Spelling?--M.F.] Mountain Range (57.0! N, 167.0! E). STS042-73-
017 shows the flow as it continues southwest (56.7! N, 172.0! E).
Offshore winds in a southwesterly direction are evident as thin
sea ice is formed in the inner area of the Gulf. Local currents
combined with the offshore winds may explain why the ice flow is
moving in a more westerly direction. This movement may also in-
dicate that the ice flow is not heavily packed. Low stratus
cloud formations are seen from the southern edge of the ice flow
