Fires Near King Sound, Australia

16.4S 124.1E

June 11th, 2011 Category: Fires, Sediments

Australia - May 23rd, 2011

King Sound is a large gulf in northern Western Australia. It expands from the mouth of the Fitzroy River, one of Australia’s largest watercourses, and opens to the Indian Ocean.

Here, sediments from the Fitzroy, Lennard, Meda, Robinson and May Rivers empty tan sediment-laden waters into the sound.

Visible northeast of the sound are two large wildfires, one at the coast and one slightly further inland. Both are releasing plumes of smoke towards the northwest.
