Greece - October 20th, 2011

Thick greenish sediments line the coast of the Black Sea, stretching from Romania (above) to Turkey (right). The shoreline of the Aegean Sea, to the south, is much clearer.

Of note in the upper part of the image is the inverse S-shape of the Carpathian Mountains, stretching mainly across Romania and Bulgaria. The terrain in Greece (lower left quadrant) and Turkey (lower right quadrant) is also quite mountains, although with valleys that are much less extensive than those east of the Carpathians.
