Sediments by Wellesley Islands, Australia

16.7S 139.5E

May 18th, 2012 Category: Sediments

Australia - May 15th, 2012

Rivers can be seen flowing across northern Queensland, Australia, and into the Gulf of Carpentaria. Here, the sediments deposited by them appear tan in color, and more concentrated by the left edge of the image, just south of the Wellesley Islands. Hazy streaks can be seen across the gulf and part of the mainland; these may be caused by air currents flowing across smoke released by wildfires that were previously burning in the area.
