Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica and Neighboring Islands- November 14th, 2011

This image offers a look at central to eastern Cuba (left), Jamaica (lower center), Haiti (lower right), the Turks and Caicos islands (center right) and the Bahamas (upper left).

The waters around the Bahamas appear light blue, then suddenly change to navy blue, as they are significantly shallower – they flow over carbonate platforms that abruptly drop off to great depths. These platforms are known as the Bahama Banks.
