Mediterranean - December 22nd, 2011

This image shows the western Mediterranean Sea and nations surrounding it, including Italy (upper right corner) and Spain (lower left quadrant). France is mostly obscured by the clouds in the upper left quadrant, but Algeria is clearly visible below in the full image.

Several islands can also be seen: Sardinia (right edge), belonging to Italy, Corsica (north of former), belonging to France, and the Balearic Islands (just below center) of Spain, the largest of which is Majorca, with Minorca to its east and Ibiza and Formentera to its west.

The coastlines are mostly sediment free, although some greenish sediments can be seen by the Ebro Delta on the coast of Spain and in the Ligurian Sea near Genova off the Italian coast.
