Mexico - November 9th, 2010

Green sediments line the coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, particularly along its western shores. The sediments appear teal green between the center and the top of the image, but dark green as one moves westward.

The Laguna de Términos (Términos Lagoon) is also filled with dark green sediments. It is located in the southwestern part of the Mexican state of Campeche, and is connected to the Bay of Campeche by two channels. The lagoon is best observed in the full image, by the western coast near where the sediments change in color from dark green to teal.
