Ice Deterioration on Lake Erie

This sequence of images is from MODIS satellite imagery. The images are from March 4-8 at 18Z (1PM EST) daily.

During this five day stretch in early March, Lake Erie was nearly cloud-free. This unique opportunity has allowed for the viewing of the deterioration of the ice caused by our recent sunny and warm weather.

Also of note in these images is the currents in the open waters visible by the sediment in the water. The snow cover on land is also disappearing as the land is transitioning from snow white to an earthen color.
