Rivermouths and Sediments from Bangladesh to Myanmar

Bangladesh and Myanmar - February 2nd, 2009

Although this image is centered on Myanmar (Burma), it is particularly interesting to observe the mouths of the Ganges River (top left), in Bangladesh, and those of the Irrawaddy (Ayeyarwaddy) River (bottom center-right), in Myanmar.

Many sediments are spilling forth from the mouths of the Ganges. Near the mouths of the Irrawaddy, on the other hand, few sediments are seen.

However, the bay to the East is full of sediments and an algal bloom. The majority of these sediments are coming from the Yangon River.
