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.

Australia – April 11th, 2013

Sediments give a tan color to the waters of King Sound (west), in Western Australia, and the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf (east), on the border of Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Sediments can be seen along much of the coastline between the two bodies of water as well.

Due to climate change, sea levels along the west coast of Australia have been rising at more than double the global average. With a significant part of the population living in coastal cities and towns, rising sea levels pose significant risks to Western Australia’s coastal infrastructure and iconic sandy beaches.

Australia – August 31st, 2012

The plumes of smoke from three fires burning on the Dampier Peninsula, in Western Australia, join together before blowing west-northwestward over the Indian Ocean. The fires are located near the shores of King Sound. Sediments from rivers such as the Fitzroy pour through the sound and out into the ocean, creating interesting green patterns in the water as they diffuse.
