Caspian Sea - July 14th, 2011

Green sediments color the waters of the northern part of the Caspian Sea. The majority of them enter the sea through the delta of the Volga River, visible as a fan-shaped dark green area along the northwestern shores, in southern Russia.

The central part of the sea appears dark blue, although the smaller Karabogas Bay, in Turkmenistan, at the central-east part of the coastline, is shallower and thus lighter in color.

Visible further east are two lakes: the small Sarygamysh Lake, on the border between Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, and the Aral Sea, divided into three basins due to its shrinking size, on the border of Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan.
