Japan and the Koreas - May 6th, 2012

A thick haze stretches between China (left) and southern Japan (right), also extending up to the western side of the Korean Peninsula. Visible through the translucent veil is Incheon Bay, whose waters are colored tan with sediments. Haze in this part of Asia is often caused by smoke from agricultural fires, smog or fog, or a mix of all there.

Sediments pour off the western coast of the Korean Peninsula and into Incheon Bay, giving its waters a tan tinge, before diffusing into the Yellow Sea.

Incheon Bay is located by the border between North Korea and South Korea. It is famous for its very high tidal range. It is also well-known for its seaport at the city of Incheon, which is the second largest in South Korea after Busan’s.

Korean Peninsula, China, Russia - March 11th, 2011

Snow still covers some of the ground in northeastern China (left), Russia (upper right quadrant) and part of the eastern coastline of the Korean Peninsula (lower right quadrant), in this early Spring image.

Other parts of China, however, closer to the Bohai Sea, are snow-free. This is the case of the valley north of the city of Panjin (which is visible by the shores west of the the Liaodong Peninsula.

Sediments can be observed in the Bohai Sea, particularly along the west coast of the Korean Peninsula. They are particularly concentrated in Incheon Bay, by the border between North Korea and South Korea.

Korean Peninsula - March 11th, 2011

Sediments pour off the western coast of the Korean Peninsula and into the Yellow Sea. They are particularly concentrated in Korea Bay (above) and Incheon Bay (center, below).

Incheon Bay is located by the border between North Korea and South Korea, and is famous for its high tidal range. Korea Bay, also called West Korea Bay, is located in the northern part of the Yellow Sea, between Liaoning Province of China and North P’yŏngan Province of North Korea.

Korea Bay is separated from the Bohai Sea by the Liaodong Peninsula, with Dalian at its southernmost point. The Yalu (Amnok) River, which marks the border between China and North Korea, empties into the Korea Bay between Dandong (China) and Sinŭiju (North Korea).
