Fujairah Offshore Anchorage

Oblong colorful shapes off the east coast of the United Arab Emirates in the Gulf of Oman mark the locations of large ships in the Fujairah offshore anchorage area. Sunglint patterns on the water reveal the presence of internal waves, surface waves, ship wakes, and oily slicks that are likely generated by the ships anchoring in the area.
