  Title: Godavari River Delta Panorama, Bay of Bengal, India
  Description:
  Sunglint over the Godavari River Delta (16.0N, 82.0E) on the Bay of Bengal, 
  highlights the intricate drainage pattern of the river basin.  Offshore,
  the current boundries and river plumes are readily visible.  The line of
  clouds  along the coast south of the delta indicate surface winds blowing
  onshore  from the Bay.  As the air passes over the warmer coastal land and
  water, it  begins to rise and form clouds as it reaches the cooler upper
  atmosphere.
