Australia – June 1st, 2013

Sediments cause the coastline of Australia’s Northern Territory to appear bright shades of gold and green, particularly in the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf (lower left quadrant) and the Van Diemen Gulf (upper right quadrant) between the mainland and Melville Island. A darker green and blue expanse of water west of the island may be colored as such due to phytoplankton rather than sediments. On the mainland, several plumes of smoke from fires can be seen blowing towards the west-northwest.

Australia – May 25th, 2013

Fires can be seen east of the sediment-laden Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, in the Victoria Daly Shire, a local government area of the Northern Territory, Australia. The shire covers an area of 168,277 km² and has an estimated population of 6,868 people. The smoke plumes from the fires are blowing in a northwesterly direction, towards the Timor Sea.

Australia – May 1st, 2013

Dozens of fires dot the landscape of northern Western Australia and the northern part of Australia’s Northern Territory, between King Sound (left) and the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf (right). Many plumes of smoke can be observed, although the thickest is emanating from a cluster of fires near King Sound.

Australia – April 30th, 2013

A thick plume of smoke fans out from a cluster of fires near the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf, in the northern part of Australia’s Northern Territory. Red markers and other, albeit fainter, smoke plumes indicate many other fires burning across the region and in neighboring Western Australia.

Australia – April 15th, 2013

Fires release thick grey plumes of smoke over northern Western Australia, in the land between King Sound (left) and the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf (visible by the right edge in the full image). Offshore, sediments give the coastal waters between the gulf and the sound a greenish tinge.
