Sea Ice in the Chukchi Sea

July 16, 2007

This image, captured by the MODIS on the Aqua satellite on July 5, 2007, shows the Chukchi Sea, and the ice that populates it. The image is visually colorful, the white ice, and black water contrasting with the green and brown land.

The Chukchi Sea is part of the Arctic Ocean, between Chukotka, Russia (left) and Alaska in the US (right). The Bering Strait, which is just south of this image, connects it to the Bering Sea and the Pacific Ocean.
