Image Caption:
STS49-82-007: Tidal Delta, Coast of Northern Australia An intri-
cate pattern of tidal creeks and gullies is outlined at low tide
along the southeastern coast of Joseph Bonaparte Gulf (border of
Western Australia and Northern Territories; 15S, 129E). The muddy
water of the estuary illustrates sediment brought down from Vic-
toria and Fitzmaurice Rivers, some of which is deposited on the
tidal flats at high tide. Hasselblad camera, 250mm lens, color
film.
