Copper and Blue

Earth As Art 6 satellite image - "Copper and Blue"

Detailed Description

The copper color in this infrared combination is the presence of lake ice in the Northwest Territories in northern Canada. The lake on the right side is Whitefish Lake, in a region with numerous glacial landforms. Bright wrinkle-like lines are eskers, ridges made of sand and gravel formed by glacial sediments deposited by meltwater rivers flowing on the ice. The blue color is land dominated by shrub tundra with some spruce stands.
