In the full image, the eastern coast of Italy along the Adriatic Sea is visible from the Promontorio del Gargano peninsula in Apulia, right, to the port city of Ancona,  in the Marche.

Green sediments frame the length of the coastline from Ancona to the Promontorio del Gargano, spilling around the tip of the peninsula and into the waters of the Gulf of Manfredonia, to its East.

Green sediments are also present along the coast of the Gulf of Manfredonia, though they appear slightly less concentrated.
