Image Caption: Strait of Hormuz in sunglint. 19 sec later. Due to
sunglint, eddy and the ship wakes are visible. Biological surfactants
and man-contributed oils produce a thin layer at the surface. These
"oils" take the form of the waters motion and also change the surface
reflectance allowing ocean features to be outlined in the sunglint.
