Australia - September 8th, 2011

Sediments can be observed in two large gulfs along the coast of northwestern Australia: King Sound, a large gulf that expands from the mouth of the Fitzroy River (lower left quadrant), and the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, which receives sediments from the Ord and Victoria RiversĀ (right of center).

In the upper left quadrant, the island of Timor, at the southern end of Maritime Southeast Asia, can be observed. The island is divided between the independent state of East Timor, and West Timor, belonging to the Indonesian province of East Nusa Tenggara.
