India - January 17th, 2011

This image thumbnail focuses on the Gulf of Khambhat (formerly known as the Gulf of Cambay), an inlet of the Arabian Sea along the west coast of India, in the state of Gujarat.

The Narmada and Tapti rivers empty into the Gulf, carrying sediments that give the gulf the brown color visible here. The color fades to light blue and then dark blue as the sediments disperse into the sea.
