Summary

Description
English: Sediment-laden water pours into the northern Gulf of Mexico from the Atchafalaya River in this photo-like image, taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite. The springtime river plume is distinct in the sediment-laden coastal water, turning the water the color of land. The tan gradually fades to clouds of green and blue as the sediment disperses.
