Gulf of St. Lawrence, Canada

On July 24, 2002, northern New England and Canada are lush with summers greenery. This true-color image from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) shows the Gulf of St. Lawrence north of center. The Bay of Fundy separates mainland New Brunswick from island-like Nova Scotia in the lower left quadrant of the image. The orange color of the water in the inlets is likely the result of extreme tidal changes churning up sediment. The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world.
