Myanmar – December 3rd, 2012

Sediments create tan and blue-green patterns as they diffuse into the Gulf of Martaban, an arm of the Andaman Sea in the southern part of Myanmar. They are released into the gulf principally from the Salween Sittaung and Yangon Rivers. The gulf is famous for its extreme tides, which range between 4 and 7 meters.
