West Florida Shelf Turbidity

The turbidity of the water over the West Florida Shelf has increased markedly over the past few days as can be seen in this series of SeaWiFS images. It is possible that this may be caused, at least in part, by increased river discharge after the recent heavy precipitation in parts of the southeastern U.S. The long narrow cloud that passes just south of Lake George in the December 17 image appears to be a smoke plume.
