Sediments Around Melville Island, Australia

11.5S 131.1E

August 22nd, 2011 Category: Sediments

Australia - August 12th, 2011

Greenish sediments color Van Diemen Gulf, a body of water between Arnhem Land and Melville Island, in Australia. These sediments come from rivers such as the South Alligator, the East Alligator and the Adelaide Rivers. Sediments can also be seen framing Melville Island.

Moving down the coast to the southwest, one comes to the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf. Although they appear greenish as the diffuse into the ocean, in the innermost parts of the gulf the sediments are quite dense and brown in color.
