Argentina - August 4th, 2010

This image of Patagonia stretches from the Atlantic Coast of Argentina to the Pacific Coast of Chile. The Andes Mountains, covered in snow, run parallel to the left edge of the image and separate the two countries.

Sediments can be seen on the Argentine coast, particularly by Bahía Blanca (upper right quadrant) and along the shores of Chubut province, south of the Valdes Peninsula. The Chilean coastline along the Gulf of Corcovado, separating Chiloé Island from the Chilean mainland, appears sediment free.
