The Saint Lawrence River flows diagonally across this image to the Gulf of Saint Lawrence (right), in Canada. Another visible body of water is the frozen, ring-shaped Manicouagan Reservoir (top right).

The Gulf of Saint Lawrence is the world’s largest estuary and the outlet of North America’s Great Lakes via the Saint Lawrence River into the Atlantic Ocean.

It is a semi–enclosed sea, covering an area of about 236,000 km2 (91,000 sq mi) and containing 35,000 km3 (7.7×1015 imp gal) of water.
