USA – November 16th, 2012

Sediments and phytoplankton create swirled patterns in three of the five Great Lakes of North America. Lake Michigan (left), shows bright blue paisley patterns in the southern half, particularly near the city of Chicago, USA. Lake Huron (center), also shows sediments and phytoplankton along its southern shores. Lake Erie (lower right quadrant), shows sediments of a more green and gold hue, and distributed throughout most of its waters. Lakes Superior (upper left quadrant) and Ontario (right edge), however, appear mostly clear.
