Image Caption:
STS46-071-036. Abu Ali Island, Saudi Arabia, photographed on 1
August, 03:53 GMT, from an altitude of 230 n.mi. using a Hassel-
blad camera equipped with a 250 mm lens and CVIS film. Last
spring, this area of the Persian Gulf was the subject of an in-
tense study of the ecological impact of the 1991 Gulf war, funded
by NOAA and the IOC (International Oceanic Commission). Photo-
graphs such as this will be of use to the researchers in inter-
preting their data.
