Black Sea - March 18th, 2012

This image shows the entirety of the Black Sea, located in an elliptical depression which lies between Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, and Ukraine. Visible on the western shores of the immense lake is the delta of the Danube River; sediments can be seen flowing from the delta into the sea. To the north, the Sea of Azov, northeast of the Crimean Peninsula and connected to the Black Sea via the Strait of Kerch, is partially covered in ice. The eastern part of the sea, near Georgia, is partially obscured by clouds.
