Image Caption:
STS044-81-027: SUNGLINT OFF INDIA Color visible photograph of
sunglint along the coast of India (18.3! N, 82.2! E). A smooth
area of water along the coast and low-level cloud lines along the
offshore boundary of this water indicate the presence of cooler,
possible fresher water adjacent to the coastline. Fresh water
plumes are clearly visible emanating from the Godavari and Krish-
na Rivers.
