Latest Satellite Photo

In this satellite photo received this afternoon from Environment Canada, the Meteorological Service of Canada, we see that the sea ice continues to retreat. It looks as if the waters are navigable all the way to Resolute. To the west, the north coast of Alaska, the Yukon and Northwest Territories has an apparent passage east to the Nunavut border.

To help you interpret the image, clouds are the swirling, lighter colored features. The ice tends to look more uniform in texture and gray in the photo. Ice free water shows up darkest. Click here for a larger version of this photo.
