Australia – August 31st, 2012

A plume of smoke from a fire blows from the Dampier Peninsula, towards the northwest and then curving westward, over the Indian Ocean. The Dampier Peninsula is a peninsula located north of Broome and Roebuck Bay in Western Australia. It is surrounded by the Indian Ocean to the west and north, and King Sound to the east. Here, sediments can be seen spreading from the lower reaches of the sound, out into the ocean.
