USA – November 19th, 2012

Sediments seep out of the shores of southern Louisiana, particularly around the mouth of the Mississippi River (lower right), giving the waters of the Gulf of Mexico varying brown and green hues. Sediments and algal growth can also be seen in Lake Pontchartrain, with the city of New Orleans visible as a grey area along its southern shores.
