The first full satellite image since freeze-up on December 18.

Only lower Lake Timiskaming, Lake Wanapitei and the Ottawa River (which only completely closes in the coldest winters) are open.











False colour enhances the view of ice and snow.


Black open water or thin, clear ice
Dull/ dark blue thin ice
Bright turquoise thick ice, or snow on unforested land  (e.g. clearcuts, farmland)
