Sediments pour into two large gulfs on the coast of India. To the north is the Gulf of Kutch, colored tan by sediments, and to the southeast is the Gulf of Khambhat, filled with slightly darker sediments.

A bright white area is visible in the upper left quadrant, north of the Gulf of Kutch. It comprises the salt flats and salt marshes of the Great Rann of Kutch, by the India-Pakistan border.
