The Corentyne River, in northern South America, spills a thick load of sediments into the Atlantic Ocean, coloring the coastal waters tan, brown, and green.

The river originates in the Acarai Mountains and flows northward for approximately 724 km (450 miles) between Guyana and Suriname. It empties into the Atlantic Ocean near Corriverton, Guyana and Nieuw Nickerie, Suriname.

Upon opening the full image, another rivermouth is visible to the right: here, the Coppename River also spills brown sediments into the Atlantic.
