Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows ice breaking up across the Hudson Bay on July 22.

A large patch of ice can be seen swirling near the Belcher Islands, which are in the southern part of the bay.

While ice melted unusually early this year in the western and southwestern regions of the Hudson Bay, ice melted a few weeks later than usual in the northeastern region of the bay along the Labrador Coast.

This image was captured by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite.
