STS49-77-014: Coastal Features on the Malay Peninsula Several
features of coastal landscapes can be seen in this striking pho-
tograph: a barrier island offshore similar in structure to Padre
Island, Texas); the prominent parallel lines of past beaches mak-
ing a "strandplain" (water in the low points reflects the sun); a
river delta interrupting this strandplain; sand dunes driven by
oblique onshore winds making a white, filigree pattern on the
barrier island.
