Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Copper River draining into the Gulf of Alaska.

The Copper River empties an area of over 24,000 square miles into the Gulf of Alaska, making it one of the biggest and most productive wetlands on the Pacific coast.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on board the Landsat 8 satellite.
