Clouds Lining Gulf of Lion, France

France - June 21st, 2011

Clouds line the Gulf of Lion, a wide embayment of the Mediterranean coastline of Languedoc-Roussillon and Provence in France, reaching from the border with Catalonia in the west to Toulon.

Rivers that empty into the gulf include the Tech, Têt, Aude, Orb, Hérault, Vidourle, and the Rhône. The continental shelf is exposed here as a wide coastal plain, and the offshore terrain slopes rapidly to the Mediterranean’s abyssal plain. Much of the coastline is composed of lagoons and salt marsh.
