Sediments in Lake Erie, USA and Canada

March 13th, 2012 Category: Lakes, Sediments

USA - March 11th, 2012

Three of the North American Great Lakes can be observed here: part of Lake Huron (upper left corner), Lake Erie (south of the former), and Lake Ontario (upper right quadrant).

Sediments give Lake Erie a swirled pattern of colors that is milky green in some areas, dark green in others, and turquoise in others. Lake Huron shows some sediments by the southeastern shoreline, while Lake Ontario shows very few sediments. A series of finger lakes can be seen parallel to each other southeast of Lake Ontario, also showing few sediments.
