Surface reflectance image of sediment off the coast of South Florida on 30 September 2022 from the MODIS instrument aboard the Aqua satellite

This true color corrected reflectance image shows an extraordinary sediment plume coming off the Florida Keys and out of Florida Bay, along with surface flow coming off of southwest Florida (the dark water plumes) and circulation features on the West Florida Shelf. All of these features are a result of Hurricane Ian having come through the area on September 28th.
