October 5th, 2012 Category: Image of the day, Rivers, Sediments

Canada – September 30th, 2012

Sediments give the western and southern shores of James Bay, Canada, bright golden, green and brown hues. The sediments on the western side and around Akimiski Island, the largest island in the bay, are lighter and more golden in color. The sediments along the southern shores of the bay, entering through the mouths of the Moose (left) and Harricana (right) Rivers, are significantly darker in color. Also of note in the image are the Belcher Islands, visible in the Hudson Bay in the upper right quadrant. The islands composing the archipelago have unusual, bent, elongated shapes.
