  STS062-151-030 Pamlico Sound Area, North Carolina, U.S.A. March 1994
The small scale of this northwest looking image allows the viewing of two river basins that creates most of the wetlands along the North Carolina coast. Several sediment-rich river tributaries are visible as they flow into Pamlico Sound, the large, muddy embayment west of Cape Hatteras, and to a lesser extent into Albemarle Sound, the smaller estuary north of Pamlico Sound. The barrier islands extend from coastal Virginia to Cape Hatteras and Cape Lookout and beyond (southwest-bottom left). In addition to the coastal wetlands of North Carolina, some of the wetlands of Virginia and Maryland are visible, even as far north as Delaware Bay (top right). Unfortunately clouds mask the mouth of Chesapeake Bay.
