Korean Peninsula, China, Russia - March 11th, 2011

Snow still covers some of the ground in northeastern China (left), Russia (upper right quadrant) and part of the eastern coastline of the Korean Peninsula (lower right quadrant), in this early Spring image.

Other parts of China, however, closer to the Bohai Sea, are snow-free. This is the case of the valley north of the city of Panjin (which is visible by the shores west of the the Liaodong Peninsula.

Sediments can be observed in the Bohai Sea, particularly along the west coast of the Korean Peninsula. They are particularly concentrated in Incheon Bay, by the border between North Korea and South Korea.
