Image Caption:
Eddy near Point Bafra, Turkey

Sediment plumes from the Kizil River delta along the north cen-
tral Turkish coast, form an eddy pattern as the plume drifts
eastward in this near-vertical view. Increased sediment flowing
into the Black Sea is of concern to scientists. Views of sedi-
ment plumes and eddies will allow scientists to better understand
the sea circulation dynamics of this region. (STS51B-55-015)
