Italy - April 14th, 2012

Haze can be observed in the western part of the Po Valley, south of the Alps, in Italy. It extends southward over the Gulf of Genoa, towards the islands of Corsica (above, belonging to France) and Sardinia (below, belonging to Italy). Following the Po Valley to the east, sediments can be seen entering the Adriatic Sea near Venice. Sediments line most of the eastern coast of Italy, giving it a greenish blue frame, while the western coast is mostly sediment free.
