Australia – June 17th, 2013

Fires in the northern part of Australia’s Northern Territory, between the Van Diemen Gulf and King Sound, release plumes of smoke that blow towards the west. The coastline is framed by sediments, with a greenish phytoplankton bloom visible further offshore in the upper left quadrant.

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.

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.

Red markers indicate the locations of wildfires near the Joseph Bonaparte Gulf (lower left quadrant) and south of the Van Diemen Gulf (upper right quadrant), in Australia’s Northern Territory. Near the image center, the cluster of markers, indicating many fires in close proximity, is so large that it almost blots out the view of the smoke plumes emanating from the blazes.

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.
