On the Edge of Ice in the Amundsen Gulf

The Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 acquired this image of an interesting sea ice edge on June 21, 2014, the first day of summer. The scene shows a part of the Amundsen Gulf, between Canada’s Victoria Island and the mainland, that opens to the Beaufort Sea to the west. The gulf forms the westernmost section of the Northwest Passage, which opened during the low-ice year of 2007, but remained ice-bound in 2014.
