Laizhou Bay in the Bohai Sea
Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features Laizhou Bay, located on the southern shores of the Bohai Sea off the east coast of mainland China.
The bay is named after the city of Laizhou, which is visible to the east. The Yellow River carries large quantities of sediment to the bay, which makes the water appear turquoise.
The Yellow River rises in the Bayan Har Mountains in Western China and flows through nine provinces before reaching the Laizhou Bay. Each year, the river carries an estimated 1.6 billion tons of silt, most of which ends up in the sea.
