Sediments Along Adriatic Coast, Italy – October 22nd, 201142.8N 12.1E
Sediments line the eastern coast of Italy, along the Adriatic Sea. By the western coast, an area of convection can be observed over the Gulf of Genoa (Golfo di Genova), the northernmost part of the Ligurian Sea.
Also of note is the partially snow-capped arch of the Alps in the upper part of the image. South of the mountains is the valley of the River Po, in northern Italy. The terrain becomes mountainous once more (the Apennines) as one moves southward along the backbone of the Italian peninsula.
