Ocean Currents Near the Mouth of the Lin River, China
This radar (ASAR) image shows the ocean currents off the eastern coast of China’s Zhejiang Province, near the mouth of the Lin River (above, center). Many ships, which look like small white dots, can be seen moving up and down the river, and in and out of its mouth.
The area near the coast appears quite flat, whereas the radar highlights the contours of the more mountainous terrain to the West.
Populated areas, bright white, include the Jiaojiang District off the southern shore of the river, and the Luqiao District, further south.
