Bangladesh - April 14th, 2012

Sediments line the coast of Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal, pouring out from the innumerous rivers and channels along the country’s coastline. Visible on the left side of the image is the Sundarban forest, lying in the vast delta on the Bay of Bengal formed by the super confluence of the Padma, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers across southern Bangladesh. The Sundarbans is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests.
