USA – October 29th, 2012

Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), and is the only state to border both the Gulf of Mexico (left) and the Atlantic Ocean (right). Much of the state is at or near sea level and its terrain is characterized by sedimentary soils. Here, sediments can be seen along the shoreline, particularly on the western side.
