Suspended Sediment in the Bering Sea

Just to the northeast of this image, the Yukon River empties into the Bering Sea and brings a large quantity of suspended sediment with it. The tides and wind driven currents of this sub-arctic sea then redistribute the sediments up and down the Alaskan coastline forming ever changing patterns in the turbid waters.
