Caspian Sea - July 30th, 2010

Sediments and algae color the northern end of the Caspian Sea green in color. Most of the rest of the large lake appears dark blue, with the exception of the lighter waters of Karabogas Bay, on the eastern side.

Many of the sediments are discharged from the Volga River, whose large delta can be seen at the top. It is a large area of wetlands and appears dark green. Upon opening the full image, two fires can be seen nearby.
