United Kingdom - April 8th, 2011

Sediments from the River Thames line the Thames Estuary, on the southeastern coast of England, and are carried northeastward into the North Sea by currents.

Sediments can also be seen along the coast further north, in the Wash, the square-mouthed bay and estuary on the northwest margin of East Anglia on the east coast of England, where Norfolk meets Lincolnshire. It is among the largest estuaries in the United Kingdom. It is fed by the Rivers Witham, Welland, Nene and Great Ouse.
