Image Caption:
Lousiana Coast and Mississippi River Delta (April 1984, 28.5! N,
91.5! W)

This oblique, east-looking view of the northern Texas and Louisi-
ana coast was photographed from an altitude of 269 n.mi. (498 km)
using a Linhof camera equipped with a 90-mm lens and natural
color film. Galveston Island and Bay (A) can be seen in the lower
left portion of the view and the Mississippi River Delta (B) is
seen near the upper right corner. Heavily sedimented water, ap-
pearing light brown in color, marks outflow from the Mississippi
River and Vermilion Bay (C). The bright area along the right
border of the view (D) is sunglint from the Gulf of Mexico.
