Southern India and Sri Lanka - February 26th, 2009

Southern India and Sri Lanka - February 26th, 2009

The southern tip of India and the island nation of Sri Lanka can be observed here. An algal bloom is present in the Palk Strait, the body of water separating the two countries.

The skies above Sri Lanka and India’s coastal plains west of the Cardamom Hills (part of the southern Western Ghats mountain range) are dotted by clouds.

In Sri Lanka, only the area around the peak of Pidurutalagala, (also known as Mount Pedro), a mountain in the central hill-country of Sri Lanka, is cloud-free. At a height of 2.534 metres (8,281 feet), it is the highest mountain in Sri Lanka.
