Image Caption: Mississippi River delta and sediment load after
heavy rains over central US.
The sediment plume is extended well beyond the "normal"
plume showing indicators of the runoff from the heavy rains
which occurred over the central US just before this Shuttle
launched.
The winds are even distributing sediments to the east rather
than the normal west direction.
