    The original finding aid described this as: 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 boundaries and river plumes are readily vizible. The line of clouds along the coast south of the delta indicate surface winds blowing onshore from the Bay. As the air passes you over the warmer coastal land and water, it begins to rise and form clouds as it reaches the cooler upper atmosphere.
