Bordeaux, Nantes and Sediments in Gironde Estuary, France

January 9th, 2011 Category: Rivers, Sediments

France - December 25th, 2010

Greyish tan sediments fill the Gironde Estuary and line part of the west coast of France. The sediments in the estuary come from the Dordogne and Garonne Rivers.

Visible at the base of the estuary is the city of Bordeaux (bottom center). Another city, Nantes, can also be observed as a grey area in the upper left quadrant. Other cities and towns appear as grey dots across the otherwise green landscape.
