Indonesia and Malaysia - May 18th, 2011

Sediments flow off the coast of the Indonesian island of Sumatra and into the Strait of Malacca. The sediments are dark brown to the west and tan to the east.

The dark brown sediments are from rivers such as the Siak, whose mouth is opposite Tebing Tinggi Island, which is separated by a narrow channel from Sumatra. It is directly west of Padang Island and directly south of Rangsang Island, and is west of Singapore across the Strait of Malacca.
