Sediments line the coasts of the Taganrog Bay, the northeastern arm of the Sea of Azov. They appear greyish brown in color near the mouth of the Don River (upper right).

Moving south, the sediments in the smaller bay near Yeysk, a port and the administrative center of Yeysky District of Krasnodar Krai, have a bright tan color. These sediments come from the mouth of the Yeya River, which is separated from the rest of the sea by the Yeya Spit, where Yeysk is situated.
