China – August 23rd, 2012

Thick sediments can be observed along the southwestern and northeastern shores of the Bohai Sea, the innermost gulf of the Yellow Sea on the coast of Northeastern and North China. The Bohai Sea is bounded by the Liaodong (above) and Shandong Peninsulas (below). There are three major bays inside the Bohai Sea: Laizhou Bay to the south, Liaodong Bay to the north, and Bohai Bay to the west. Here, the sediments along the shores of Bohai and Laizhou Bays are golden tan in color, while those in the Liaodong Bay are more reddish-tan.
