These true-color images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on the Terra and Aqua satellites show eastern China and Bo-Hai Bay (bottom center on September 6). Numerous cities make gray patches against the green landscape. Bo-Hai is awash with tan-colored sediment. The image from September 23 shows a wider area, with Bo-Hai right of center.
