Image Caption: Atchafalaya River Basin in sunglint. Much of this area
was water, tens of meters deep, in 1957. Flow of the Mississippi River
during the past 35 years has filled in the former basin and begun a
delta south of Morgan City, Louisiana (on the large, braided channel).
A small birds-foot delta is forming at the mouth of a canal to the
west.
