Hudson Bay Watercolors

Sediments swirl along the coast of the Hudson Bay.

Rivers sweep fresh water and sediment into the Hudson Bay in this satellite image. Dark brown plumes mark the mouths of several coastal rivers as they add to the cyclonic sediment flow around the bay and out the Hudson Strait. Paler swirls, like strokes of watercolors, mark turbulent mixing between the sediment-filled shallows and the deep blue waters of the bay. (Image credit: J. Stevens/USGS; via NASA Earth Observatory)
