 (JPG) Tarpum Bay, Bahamas (522,819 bytes) ( 2,720 x 1,670 )
In this ASTER image the features that look like folded material are carbonate sand dunes in the shallow waters of Tarpum Bay, southwest of Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. The sand making up the dunes comes from the erosion of limestone coral reefs, and has been shaped into dunes by ocean currents. The image was acquired on May 12, 2002, covers an area of 28.2 x 46.1 km, and is located at 25 degrees north latitude and 76.4 degrees west longitude.
