Visible on the other side of the Italian peninsula, in the Adriatic Sea, are green sediments and algae spilling forth from the mouth of the Po River.

Hundreds of firefighters are fighting fires in Croatia and Bosnia. Numerous blazes in the forests of the southern regions of the two neighboring countries have already sent over 1,500 hectares of land up in smoke, including pine forests, grazing areas, olive groves and vineyards. Here, smoke from the fires blows westward over the Adriatic Sea.

Italy - April 14th, 2012

Haze can be observed in the western part of the Po Valley, south of the Alps, in Italy. It extends southward over the Gulf of Genoa, towards the islands of Corsica (above, belonging to France) and Sardinia (below, belonging to Italy). Following the Po Valley to the east, sediments can be seen entering the Adriatic Sea near Venice. Sediments line most of the eastern coast of Italy, giving it a greenish blue frame, while the western coast is mostly sediment free.
