Strait of Dover - March 9th, 2009

The Strait of Dover (French: Pas de Calais) is the strait at the narrowest part of the English Channel (center).

Sediments flowing from rivers hug the shores of England (above) and France (below). There is a particularly intense concentration near the mouth of the Thames River (top center).

The shortest distance across the strait is 34 kilometers, from the South Foreland, north-east of Dover in the county of Kent, England, to Cap Gris Nez, a cape near to Calais in the French d├ępartement of Pas-de-Calais.

On a clear day, it is possible to see the opposite coastline and shoreline buildings with the naked eye.
