Image Caption: STS073-753-017 Exmouth Gulf, Western Australia, Australia October 1995
The southern half of Exmouth Gulf, located along the northwest coast of Western Australia, is dominated by a wide coastal tidal flat that floods during heavy rains. The darker terrain immediately along the southeast to east coast of Exmouth Gulf (and the water's edge) shows an area where mangrove trees are located. The darker, generally oval-shaped features inland (east of) from the swath of mangrove are elevated above the coastal plain. Centipede Hill forms part of the large peninsula that projects northward (center of image) from the southern end of Exmouth Gulf. The irregular shaped, lighter colored areas near the bottom of the image appear to be fire scars, usually caused by a lightening strike in this grassy environment. Refer to STS073-753-018, which covers the same general area, except this picture covers a little more terrain further north.
