Lake Superior

This past winter’s unusually thick and widespread ice in Lake Superior has retreated with the arrival of spring. This Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image from the Aqua satellite on April 8, 2003, shows ice relegated to inlets and a few places along the shores of Lakes Superior (center), Michigan (south) and Huron (southeast).
