Dawesville Channel, Australia
The Dawesville Channel, in Australia, is pictured in this Flock-1 image, acquired 22 December 2014.
Sunglint highlights the difference between the rough water of the Indian Ocean and the smooth surface of the Peel-Harvey Estuary, which is located in Western Australia.
The two water bodies are linked by the Dawesville Channel, an artifical inlet constructed to flush out the polluted estuary. Before the channel was built, nutrients from farm runoff led to frequent (and occasionally toxic) algal blooms.
