Mexico - October 24th, 2011

Sediments and algal growth line the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, giving it a bright greenish blue frame. The coastline to the south and the west is mostly sediment free.

Hanging over the Isthmus of Tehuantepec is a small area of convection, concentrated on the northern side. The isthmus includes the southeastern parts of the states of Veracruz and Oaxaca, including small areas of Chiapas and Tabasco. The states of Tabasco and Chiapas are east of the isthmus, with Veracruz and Oaxaca to the west.
