Image Caption:
Northern Caspian coastline. The great gulf of the northeast
Caspian Sea (center) is bluer, the northwest browner as a result
of sediment delivered by the Volga River, the great delta of
which occupies the entire bottom of the scene. Salt flats and
ancient shorelines can be seen on the opposite (eastern) side
between clouds. (51B-31-060)
