Tunisia – December 1st, 2012

Near the center of this image is the Gulf of Gabès, a gulf on Tunisia’s east coast in the Mediterranean Sea, off North Africa. The gulf roughly spans the coast from the town of Mahrès in the Sfax Gouvernorate to the island of Djerba.  Here, greenish phytoplankton and sediments can be seen in the gulf, spreading off the northwest coast of Djerba, and surrounding the Kerkennah Islands.
