Image Caption:
STS042-92-067 (CIR) Indus River Delta (24.0! N, 68.0! E)
This oblique photograph of sunglint in the Indus River
Delta was taken at the same time as STS042-81-002 using an ident-
ical camera/lens combination, but with color infrared film.
While the enhancement of drainage features is identical in the
two photos, the infrared photo has significantly decreased atmos-
pheric haze, allowing for better definition of Earth and water
features. Changes in land cover are more evident in the infrared
photograph than in the natural color version.

STS042-92-067 (CIR) This east-looking view of the Rann of Kutch
shows the coastline in sunglint and reveals enormous detail of
past coastlines and of the delta of the Indus River, which forms
the border between India and Pakistan.
