Sediments create a wide tan frame along the southern coast of Papua province, Indonesia, on the island of New Guinea.

These sediments surround the islands of Yos Sudarso and Komoran. The former, also known as Pulau Dolak, is leaf shaped and about 165 km long with an area of 11,600 km².

Komoran is an island just south of the much larger Yos Sudarso near the south coast of New Guinea in Papua province, Indonesia. Its area is 695 km².

Meanwhile, on the western coast, the Digul River spills golden brown sediments into the Arafura Sea. The 525 kilometer- (326 mi-) long river travels across a low region of extensive swamps for much of its length and creates a delta near Yos Sudarso Island.
