The bright white areas in the upper left quadrant are the salt flats and salt marshes of the Great Rann of Kutch, by the India-Pakistan border.

Visible south of the salt marshes is the Gulf of Kutch. Another gulf, the Gulf of Khambhat, can be observed further down the coast. Both are filled with tan sediments that pour out into the Arabian Sea.
