India and Pakistan – December 28th, 2012

A dust storm that has been blowing off the coast of Iran and Pakistan sends dust and sand particles over the mouth of the Indus River and over the Arabian Sea. Over land, the dust hangs in the air by the Pakistan-India border, partially veiling the Rann of Kutch wetlands and the Gulf of Kutch to their south. The gulf of Khambhat, in the lower right corner, remains unaffected.

India and Pakistan – December 4th, 2012

Smoke from fires in northwestern India blows towards the southwest, over the India-Pakistan border near the Arabian Sea. The smoke stretches across the coastline from the mouth of the Indus River, in Pakistan, past the Gulf of Khambhat, in India (bottom right). Visible between the two, through the veil of smoke, are the Rann of Kutch and the Gulf of Kutch.

India and Pakistan – December 1st, 2012

Smoke from fires in northern India spreads eastwards towards Pakistan and the Gulf of Khambhat, an inlet of the Arabian Sea along the west coast of India, in the state of Gujarat. Here, sediments from the Narmada and Tapti Rivers can be seen pouring into the gulf, which is shallow and known for its extreme tides, which vary greatly in height and run into it with amazing speed.
