Sediments surround Melville Island and fill the Van Diemen Gulf, off the coast of the Northern Territory of Australia. Melville Island is located in the Timor Sea, west of the Cobourg Peninsula in Arnhem Land and north of Darwin. Visible on the Australian mainland, in the lower right quadrant, are plumes of smoke from two wildfires, blowing towards the west-northwest.
