Sediments in Gulf of Mexico and Peaks of Sierra Madre Oriental, USA and Mexico

26.4N 99W

October 10th, 2011 Category: Mountains, Sediments

USA - September 26th, 2011

Sediments line the Gulf of Mexico by the coast of Texas, USA. Once one moves beyond the border, into the Mexican state of Tamaulipas, fewer sediments are visible along the shoreline.

While the land in Texas appears mostly flat, once one moves into Mexico the crests of the Sierra Madre Oriental can be observed. Heavily vegetated, they appear darker green and brown than the surrounding area.
