Sediments near English Channel - May 30th, 2009

Sediments ripple outwards into the North Sea, near the English Channel, in wavelike patterns caused by surface currents. The majority of these are coming forth from the River Thames, in England (left), and the Scheldt, in the Netherlands (right).

The Thames can be seen as a golden yellow curve meandering through the city of London, visible as a greyish area, to the Thames Estuary. The waters of the estuary take on various shades of tan, gold and green as the sediments filter out into the sea.
