西澳大利亚的埃克斯茅斯湾在西面以海角山脉为界;在半岛的底部附近,可以看到太阳观测站所在地利尔蒙机场。古海滩上形成的喷口增生脊沿着半岛的西边延伸,今天半岛的西边是宁格罗礁。洪水携带的赤泥,是前一周博比飓风的结果,覆盖着海湾东侧平坦的沿海地区。泥浆在红树林覆盖的岛屿之间流过时,与海水混合缓慢。海湾中的丝状图案可能表明浮游生物大量繁殖。从南到北延伸的岛屿古沙丘覆盖了整个景观。
Exmouth Gulf, Australia as seen from STS-67 Endeavour
The Exmouth Gulf, western Australia, is bounded on the west by the Cape Ranges; near the base of the peninsula the Learmonth Airfield, site of a solar observatory, can be seen. Spit-accretion ridges formed on ancient beaches extend along the western edge of the peninsula, which today is lined by the Ningaloo Reef. Red mud carried by floodwaters, the result of Hurricane Bobby the previous week, cover flat coastal land along the eastern side of the gulf. The mud is mixing slowly with marine water as it filters through passes between mangrove-covered islands. A filamentous pattern in the gulf probably indicates a plankton bloom. Island paleodunes stretching from south to north cover the landscape.
