Image Caption:
STS045-80-031: Coast of Iran, Persian Gulf Sediment-laden water
of the Persian Gulf along the coast of Iran. Space Shuttle pho-
tographs have historically revealed turbid water in the Persian
Gulf, along the coast of Iran and Iraq. This photograph, and
others of the Persian Gulf collected during the STS- 45 mission,
will aid researchers presently studying the effects of the recent
Gulf war on the Gulf ecosystem.
