Australia – July 4th, 2012

Dry conditions in the northern part of Australia’s Northern Territory continue to fuel wildfires in the region. Here, plumes of smoke from multiple blazes can be seen near the Gulf of Carpentaria (right), blowing towards the northwest. Also of note are sediments along the shores of the state: the sediments in the Gulf of Carpinteria appear milky blue, while those in the Van Diemen Gulf (upper left) are greenish in color, indicating the presence of phytoplankton growth as well.
