Baffin Island and Air Force Island in Nunavut, Canada

September 5th, 2010 Category: Snapshots

Canada - September 4th, 2010

The eastern shoreline of Foxe Basin, north of Hudson Bay, in Nunavut, Canada, is lined by yellowish sediments. Also surrounded by sediments on three sides is Air Force Island, an uninhabited island located along the southwestern coast of Baffin Island that measures 1720 km2 in size.

The rest of the land visible in the image belongs to the large Baffin Island, which marks the northern boundary of Foxe Basin. Some areas along the northern coastline are white with snow. The rounded, solid white area due north of Air Force Island, on the left edge of the image, is the Barnes Ice Cap.
