Close-up Lake Erie ice cover Feb 12th, 2001

WOW!!  What an image.  This photo was taken from NASA's MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) over the eastern end of Lake Erie.  Now this really shows just how intricate the ice cover can be.  You can see the numerous breaks in the ice that may have been the result of a strong wind storm that occurred the previous couple of days. If you look close you can even see where the ice boom is located, as well as the Black Rock Canal on the Niagara River!  Thanks again to the people at CIMSS/University of Wisconsin - Madison for the imagery!
