Kuskokwim Delta 1978

“This SAR image is of the Kuskokwim River delta, Western Alaska. It was taken by Seasat on July 13, 1978. The patterns are formed by river water flowing around sand bars. The pock-marked land is covered by small permafrost lakes.”

I’ve always found this is a fascinating image. Kongiganak and Kwigillingok can be seen.
