Canada – May 20th, 2013

Ice covers the northern part of Lake Winnipeg, in Manitoba, Canada, visible at the center of the bottom edge of this image. The shores of the Hudson Bay are also lined with ice (upper right quadrant), and sediments can be seen spilling from the Nelson River into the bay.

Climate change has the potential to affect the ecology and biology of Lake Winnipeg. Climate-forcing scenarios predict increases in mid-summer temperatures through the 21st century, with even greater increases in mid-winter temperatures, extending the open water season.
