Image Caption:
STS047-151-148 YELLOW RIVER DELTA, China. An orange tongue of
sediment issues into the Bohai Gulf at the north end of the Yel-
low Sea. The sediment is derived mainly from recent wind-blown
sediments known as loess, a sediment type that blankets much of
the Gobi Desert of inland China.
