Korean Peninsula - March 11th, 2011

Sediments pour off the western coast of the Korean Peninsula and into the Yellow Sea. They are particularly concentrated in Korea Bay (above) and Incheon Bay (center, below).

Incheon Bay is located by the border between North Korea and South Korea, and is famous for its high tidal range. Korea Bay, also called West Korea Bay, is located in the northern part of the Yellow Sea, between Liaoning Province of China and North P’yŏngan Province of North Korea.

Korea Bay is separated from the Bohai Sea by the Liaodong Peninsula, with Dalian at its southernmost point. The Yalu (Amnok) River, which marks the border between China and North Korea, empties into the Korea Bay between Dandong (China) and Sinŭiju (North Korea).
