Sediments in North Sea
Sediments are visible in the North Sea along the coasts of England (left) and France, Belgium and The Netherlands (right).
The amount of sediments is greatest along the shorelines of The Netherlands and Belgium. Fewer sediments are present in the English Channel and Strait of Dover (bottom left), and along the coast of France, which is framed by a greenish color.
The green from the sediments is also present in the center of the sea. Its streaked patterns seem to indicate the direction of the water currents.
