Astronaut Leroy Chiao's Space Blog- postcard of Malaysia

This is the town of Lutong (left) and the Baram river on the border of Malaysia (below the river) and Brunei. The mud from the Batam flows into the ocean and acts as a dye, revealing the currents and flow patterns. Note how the mud diffuses gradually on the left side, but that there is a well-defined boundary on the right side.
