Gulf of Martaban Showing Fewer Sediments, Myanmar

16.8N 96.8E

April 23rd, 2012 Category: Sediments

Myanmar - April 14th, 2012

The Gulf of Martaban is an arm of the Andaman Sea in the southern part of Burma. The Salween Sittaung and Yangon rivers empty into it, and its waters usually appear opaque tan due to sediments, from the upper to the lower reaches. However, in this image fewer sediments are visible (click here for other images of the gulf). This difference may be due to a lack of rain or to changes in the tides.
