Image Caption: This near vertical photograph of the North Sea water color shows
variations in suspended material concentration at the edge of the
German Bight. The suspended material most likely represents
theleading edge of plumes from the Elbe and Weser Rivers, which
dominate the physical and optical properties of water in the Ger-
man Bight. The photograph was taken from an altitude of 365 km
(197 n.mi.) using a Hasselblad camera equipped with a 100 mm
lens. The distance across the photograph is about 201 km (109
n.mi.). (S51B-31-089)
