Australia - December 6th, 2010

This image focuses on the northern coastline of Western Australia. The contours of the portion of the coast in the upper right quadrant are highlighted by sun glint. Several rivers flow into the Indian Ocean along this section of the coast: the Mitchell River, the Roe River and the Prince Regent River.

At the end of the area highlighted by glint is King Sound. Sediments from the Fitzroy, Lennard, Meda, Robinson and May Rivers flow into the sound and then into the Indian Ocean.

Another river, the Rudall River, is visible further inland in the lower right quadrant. It appears white in color and is connected to Lake Dora, with Lake Disappointment further to the South near the bottom edge.
