Satellite image of Temagami freeze-up 2018

A great image today, in an otherwise dull overcast autumn, caught by using false colour to highlight the open water on Lake Temagami, our benchmark for calling freeze-up. The ice is running ahead of last year. Only deep lakes have open water.



Black open water or thin, clear ice
Dull/ dark blue thin ice with little or no snow cover
Bright turquoise thick ice, snow-covered ice or snow on unforested land  (e.g. clearcuts, farmland)
