Bay of Bengal - March 24th, 2009

In the lower part of this image, many rivermouths can be seen pouring brown sediments into the Bay of Bengal, along the coasts of Bangladesh and northeastern India. The wide rivers visible to the North, below the Himalayas, are also loaded with sediments.

The Ganges River comes into view at the center left, entering Bangladesh from India. The Brahmaputra River, on the other hand, flows down from the upper right. Its name changes to Jamuna once it enters Bangladesh, near the curve where its course changes to the South.

These two rivers and many others, including the Padma, Meghna, Ayeyarwady, Godavari, Mahanadi, Krishna and Kaveri, all flow into the Bay of Bengal.
