East Siberia Sea.jpg

Summary[ ]

Description
English: The winter sea ice in the Laptev Sea (on the left) and the East Siberian Sea (on the right) is looking a bit like a cracked windshield in these true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) images from June 16 and 23, 2002. North of the thawing tundra, the sea ice takes on its cracked, bright blue appearance as it thins, which allows the reflection of the water to show through. Numerous still-frozen lakes dot the tundra.
