Image Caption:
STS49-96-062: S. China Sea: Ship Wakes and Oil Slicks As in the
previous slide, this view of sunglint in the South China Sea
shows an oil slick resulting from ship bilge pumping along the
coast of the Philippine island of Luzon. The interesting aspect
of this slick is the braided pattern that appears to grow and
develop with distance from the ship, which is seen at the bottom
of the photo.
