October 30th, 2012 Category: Fires, Rivers, Sediments

USA and Mexico – October 27th, 2012

Fires in Mexico in the northern part of the Baja California Peninsula, south of the city of Tijuana (visible as a greyish tan area by the coast) and just east of the city of Ensenada, release plumes of smoke that blow westward over the Pacific Ocean. Visible on the other side of the peninsula are sediments from the Colorado River entering the Gulf of California or Sea of Cortez.
