Argentina - August 14th, 2011

Ash from the 2011 Puyehue volcanic eruption shows up faintly off the coast of Argentina in the lower left quadrant of this image. The ash lightly veils the Valdes Peninsula.

Also visible along the shoreline are sediments near Bahia Blanca (center) and in the Rio de la Plata Estuary (top). The city of Buenos Aires can be observed as a grey area at the edge of the estuary.
