Saudi Arabia - December 27th, 2010

The upper reaches of the Persian Gulf appear a mottled teal color due to the influx of sediments from the Shatt al’Arab River, the mouth of which is visible at the top left.

A few streaks of pale tan dust can be discerned over the gulf in the center of the image. These are best observed in the full image, where they are more easily discerned from the sediments below.
