April 22nd, 2012 Category: Rivers, Sediments

India - April 14th, 2012

Sediments from the Narmada and Tapti Rivers give the waters of the Gulf of Khambhat, an inlet of the Arabian Sea along the west coast of India, in the state of Gujarat, a brown hue that becomes progressively greener as they diffuse into the sea. The gulf is shallow and abounds in shoals and sandbanks including the Mal Bank at the river mouths and the Malacca Banks at the gulf’s entrance to the Arabian Sea.
