Myanmar and Bangladesh – December 17th, 2012

Sediments full the Gulf of Martaban, in southern Myanmar, appearing as a tan triangular indentation along the coastline in the lower right quadrant. Visible in the upper left quadrant are more sediments, from the mouths of the Ganges River in southern Bangladesh. These sediments are partially veiled by smoke that has blown eastward from fires in northern India.
