From Dudley Chelton: I drove back from the San Francisco AGU meeting on Saturday, December 17, 2016. Northern California had just had 3 days of steady rain. There was a lot of standing water everywhere and the rivers were overflowing their banks. All along the coast, the nearshore water was brown from sediment-laden river outflows. The left image in the 3-panel figure shows a satellite image of the northern California/Oregon coast. The upper right image is a wide-angle photo taken of the Klamath River plume taken from a pull-out on Highway 101 in the northern Redwoods. The bottom right image is a zoomed image of the turbidity front. Note the relief of the front, as evidenced with the low sun angle by the shadow to the right of the front. There is also a line of foam just behind the turbidity front.
