Northeastern China - May 8th, 2009

The northeastern coast of China curves in and out from the Bohai Sea (above), to the Yellow Sea, to Shanghai on the mouth of the Yangtze River (lower right).

The shorelines of the Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea are ringed by sediments, particularly to the South, while those of the Yangtze Rivermouths are highlighted by sun glint.

Further inland, the plains of Jiangsu Province appears to have tan spots – cities and towns amidst the green terrain.

Jiangsu is very flat and low-lying, with plains covering 68 percent of its total area (water covers another 18 percent), and most of the province not more than fifty meters above sea level. It is also laced with a well-developed irrigation system.

Jiangsu has a coastline of over one thousand kilometers along the Yellow Sea, and the Yangtze River passes through its southern parts.
