Canada - April 14th, 2012

Striking copper-colored sediments can be observed in the Bay of Fundy, on the Atlantic coast of North America. The gulf is located on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the U.S. state of Maine. The bay is famous for having the highest tidal range in the world. Here, the copper-colored sediments are most concentrated in two inlets: Cobequid Bay (right) and Cognecto Bay (left).

Visible in the center of this image is the Bay of Fundy, a bay on the Atlantic coast of North America, on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, with a small portion touching the U.S. state of Maine.

The Bay of Fundy is known for having the highest tidal range in the world. Rivaled by Ungava Bay in northern Quebec, King Sound in Western Australia, Gulf of Khambhat in India, and the Severn Estuary in the UK, it has one of the highest vertical tidal ranges in the world.

On the right side of the image, copper-colored sediments can be seen pouring into two inlets of the Bay of Fundy: Cobequid Bay (right) and Cognecto Bay (left).

While snow dusts the land of the Canadian province of New Brunswick, most of the province of Nova Scotia is snow-free. Part of Prince Edward Island is also visible at the upper right.

New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are separated by the Bay of Fundy. Reddish sediments pour into the bay, filling inlets such as Cobequid Bay (far right).

Parts of the northeastern USA, including states such as Maine, New Hamshire and Vermont, and parts of the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Quebec, are dusted with snow in this early spring image.

Other areas, such as Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, and most of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, are snow-free. Sediments can be seen along the coastline between Nova Scotia and Massachusetts, although most are concentrated in the Bay of Fundy to the north.

The land belonging to the Canadian provinces of Nova Scotia (right), New Brunswick (left) and Prince Edward Island (top) can be observed here. The large bay separating the former two is the Bay of Fundy, while the latter is located in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.

Red sediments can be seen pouring into two inlets of the Bay of Fundy: Cobequid Bay (right) and Cognecto Bay (left). The Gulf of Saint Lawrence appears mostly sediment free.
