Image Caption: STS046-075-081 Port Hedland Area, Western Australia, Australia August 1992
The geographic area included in this picture almost coincides with the area that was photographed in December 1990. The caption to STS035-076-054 applies to both images. This picture does present more detail within the highly reflective salt evaporation pans where the commercial mining of salt is taking place east of Port Hedland (Port Hedland is barely visible midway along the coast).
