Argentina - December 22nd, 2011

Sediments can be observed off the Atlantic Coast of Argentina, near the city of Bahía Blanca (upper right). The coastline further south appears mostly sediment free, with the exception of a greenish tinge around the Valdés Peninsula. The full image stretches southward all the way to Tierra del Fuego.

Visible further inland are several lakes in the province of Neuquén. They lie near the confluence of the Neuquén River (above) and the Limay River (below). Also located at their confluence is the city of Neuquén.
