France - March 31st, 2009

France - March 31st, 2009

The terrain visible in this image of northern France consists mostly of coastal plains.The greyish area in the center of this image is Paris, the country’s capital.

The River Seine can be seen flowing through the city, out to the coast where it discharges brown sediments into the English Channel by Le Havre.

Sediments are also being spilled into the Channel by the Somme River, in Picardy, northern France. These sediments appear to be making their way down the coast, towards Le Havre.

The Somme is 245 km long, from its source in the high ground of the former Forest of Arrouaise at Fonsommes near Saint-Quentin, to the Bay of the Somme, in the English Channel.
