November 8th, 2012 Category: Lakes, Sediments

Argentina – October 26th, 2012

Sediments can be seen in various bodies of water along the coast of South America. In the lower left quadrant is the Río de la Plata Estuary, between Argentina (minimally visible at the left edge) and Uruguay. The city of Montevideo can be seen along the shoreline by the estuary. Moving northeastward up the coast, Laguna Merín (or Lagoa Mirim) appears filled with greyish brown sediments, while Lagoa dos Patos, further up the coast in Brazil, shows sediments with a more reddish hue.
