Baltic Sea - March 23rd, 2011

Snow dusts the terrain of Estonia (top right) and parts of Latvia (center), while most of Lithuania (lower right), Russia’s Kaliningrad Oblast and coastal Poland (bottom) are snow-free. Visible near the left edge is the island of Gotland, part of Sweden. It is the largest island in the Baltic Sea, with an area of 2,994 kmĀ².

Ice can be seen in the Gulf of Riga, a bay of the Baltic Sea between Latvia and Estonia with a maximum depth of 67 m. Ice is also present in the Curonian Lagoon, on the coast of Lithuania, and in a small section of the Vistula Lagoon, on the coast of Kaliningrad Oblast and Poland.
