Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team at NASA/GSFC
Intruding between Ontario (left) and Quebec (right), James Bay extends southward from the larger Hudson Bay to the north. In this true-color MODIS image, the Bay is melting and is full of brown sediment washed in from numerous rivers. The island in the Bay is called Akimiski Island.
