Spain and Portugal - December 18th, 2011

This image stretches across Portugal (left) to Spain (center and right). Sediments can be observed along the west coast of Portugal and the shores of the Gulf of Cádiz, the arm of the Atlantic Ocean between Cape St. Vincent (Cabo de São Vicente) in Portugal and Cape Trafalgar (Cabo Trafalgar) at the western end of the Strait of Gibraltar.

Two major rivers, the Guadalquivir and the Guadiana, as well as smaller rivers, like the Odiel, the Tinto, and the Guadalete, reach the ocean here. The Strait of Gibraltar can be seen at the lower right, with part of Morocco partially visible by the clouds at the bottom edge.
