Mexico - January 15th, 2011

The Laguna de Términos (Términos Lagoon) is made up of a series of rich, sediment-laden lagoons and tidal estuaries connected by two channels to the Bay of Campeche in the southern part of Gulf of Mexico, in the southwestern part of the Mexican state of Campeche.

Here, the rich sediments can be seen in the lagoon itself and also spreading along the coastline. The lagoon is about 112.5 square km in area (about 50 miles long and 20 miles wide). Twenty-nine percent of the lagoon is covered with seagrass.
