Iran - December 22nd, 2010

Sediments from the Shatt al’Arab, the river created by the confluence of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, give the waters in the upper part of the Persian Gulf a cloudy, greenish appearance.

Greenish sediments can also be noted off the coast of Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, in the lower part of the gulf by the southern shores, and between Iran and the island of Qeshm by the northern shores.
