United Kingdom and France - March 28th, 2012

Sediments can be observed in the English Channel, separating the United Kingdom (above) from France (below, right), and along the western coast of France, particularly in the Gironde Estuary. The Gironde is formed from the meeting of the rivers Dordogne and Garonne just below the centre of Bordeaux. Covering around 635 km2 (245 sq mi), it is the largest estuary in western Europe.
