China - December 27th, 2010

The large, grey urban area in the upper right quadrant includes the city of Guangzhou, the capital of the Guangdong province in the People’s Republic of China. It is located in southern China on the Pearl River, about 120 km (75 mi) northwest of Hong Kong.

Sediments can be see along the coast and in the Qiongzhou Strait, also called Hainan Strait. The strait is a body of water that separates the Leizhou Peninsula in Guangdong, southern China, to the north from Hainan Island to its south.
