The unique water color of Rupert Bay •

Today’s Image of the Day from NASA Earth Observatory shows what happens when the river meets seawater in Rupert Bay, Quebec.

From space, the view of fresh river water colliding with the ocean looks incredible. It is colored by sediment and dissolved organic matter from the runoff of nearby peatlands.

This image was captured by the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 on June 9, 2018.
