The large lagoons known as Lagoa dos Patos and Lagoa Mirim are located near the Atlantic Coast of Brazil and Uruguay. Lagoa Mirim, also called Laguna MerĂ­n, is the further south of the two, located partially in both countries. The lagoon is mostly a uniform brownish grey color.

Lagoa dos Patos, on the other hand, meaning Lagoon of the Ducks, is the larger of the two, and located entirely within Brazil. It appears mostly greenish in color here, although upon opening the full image, some dark brown, tan, and dark green areas can also be observed. The city of Porto Alegre can be seen on its northern shores.
