Image Caption: STS61B-52-44 Corpus Christi Bay, Baffin Bay, and Padre Is., South Texas

This photo was taken with color infrared film (same image as STS61B-47-96, taken with CVIS film). That means that this film is sensitive to reflected infrared light. Vegetation appears red. This also generates more contrast between certain features emphasizing those details. With the worlds vegetation coverage changing in so many places around the world this film gives people information to better detect and monitor those changes.
