Image Caption:
STS042-92-068 (CIR) Indus River Delta (24.0! N, 68.0! E)
This oblique view of coastal water turbidity adjacent to
the Indus River Delta and surrounding wetlands was photographed
on 24 January at 04:39 GMT using a Hasselblad camera equipped
with color infrared transparency film and a 250 mm lens.JJThe
view is identical to STS042-81-003, photographed with natural
color film. Much of the atmospheric haze appears to have been
eliminated, resulting in greater discrimination between land and
water. Variability in water tone, indicating changes in suspend-
ed sediment concentration, is more evident than in the natural
color photograph. Variations in water color, on the other hand,
are suppressed in comparison with the natural color photograph,
since blue light is filtered out.
