Carolina CDOM

A broad band of dark CDOM-laden water hugs the coast of North and South Carolina all the way from Cape Fear to Cape Romain on September 26, 2018. The dark water has run out of the Carolinas after Hurricane Florence dumped heavy rain on those states.

The above image was collected by Landsat 8. Click on it to get a larger version. A broader view collected by Aqua/MODIS later the same day is also available.
