Brazil – May 10th, 2013

Sediments, perhaps mixed with phytoplankton, line the coast of the Brazilian states of Rio Grande do Sul (below) and Santa Catarina (above). In the full image, the state and city of São Paulo can be seen as well (top). Partially obscured by clouds by the bottom edge is Lagoa dos Patos, a heavily sedimented coastal lagoon.
