STS051-101-065 Keppel Bay Area, Queensland, Australia September 1993
Although clouds obscure much of the land area along this section of the northeast coast of Queenland, two large sediment plumes are visible in Keppel Bay (bottom right) and Shoalwater Bay (upper left). A very short segment of the muddy looking Fitzroy River (bottom center) that flows through Rockhampton is also visible. There is a faint, light colored pattern in the coastal waters immediately east of Pearl and Freshwater Bays which could be a plankton bloom. The Capricorn Channel which separates this coastal region from the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef is noted for numerous plankton bloom sightings.
