Ukraine - November 28th, 2010

The Crimean Peninsula, part of Ukraine, occupies most of this image. The peninsula is surrounded by the Black Sea to the west and south, and by the Sea of Azov to the east. Greenish sediments can be observed in both of these bodies of water.

The penisula is connected to mainland Ukraine by the Isthmus of Perekop. The brightly colored green, blue and tan lakes and inlets located across the isthmus are the salty, marshy bodies of water collectively known as the Sivash Sea.
