Australia - September 29th, 2011

In the upper right quadrant, tan sediments from the Fitzroy River spill through King Sound, Australia, and into the Indian Ocean, becoming green in color as they diffuse.

Offshore, dust from Australia’s arid interior can be seen blowing westward off the coast. Some wave clouds can be observed amidst the dust, in linear rows parallel to the shoreline, seemingly opposite the streaks in the cloud of dust.
