Australia - November 9th, 2010

Sediments are present into the Spencer Gulf (west) and Gulf St. Vincent (east), the two of which are separated by the Yorke Peninsula. The city of Adelaide is located by the shores of Gulf St. Vincent.

Moving inland from the apex of Spencer Gulf, the Flinders Ranges appear as a dark brown area. In the full image, the almost swirled shape of the individual ridges can be observed. The ranges lie between Lake Torrens (west) and Lake Frome (east). Both are usually dry salt flats, hence the whitish grey color.
