Image Caption: STS066-158-095 Mississippi River Floodplain, Arkansas, U.S.A. November 1994
The meandering Mississippi River with large white sandbars and a broad floodplain are featured in this south-looking photograph of the Mississippi River Valley. Numerous cultivated field patterns confirm that this fertile floodplain is a region of extensive agriculture. Two meandering rivers merge with the Mississippi River from the west--the broad Arkansas River and the narrow White River, which seems to have developed its own floodplain of dark forested land on either side. A narrow band of clouds overhangs to the west.
