Australia- August 3rd, 2012

Smoke from fires in Northern Australia blows in a northwesterly direction, towards the coast. Visible at the top right is Van Diemen Gulf, in which sediments can be seen streaming outward from the coast, carried by ocean currents. At the bottom left, sediments can also be seen filling the southern part of the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf.
