Image Caption: Sediment distribution from the Ganges River Delta
The Ganges River delta in the Bay of Bengal empties large
amounts of sediment carried from the Himalayas. The shuttle
photography is one of the few sensors which can monitor
sediment distributions from rivers on a world wide scale.
(The dark area is a protected mangrove swamp where one of
the last refuges of the Bengal tiger exists.)
