Image Caption: Amber sunglint over the Great Lakes
A large, slow-moving area of high pressure was centered over the
province of Quebec on October 21, 2000. This scene with sun glint
illuminates almost all water-bodies in the region from the upper St.
Lawrence River through the lower Great Lakes of Ontario and Erie. The
coppery tint of the reflections is indicative of atmospheric aerosols.
Particularly noticeable is the color change over Lake Erie as a light,
southeasterly airflow near the surface advects smog from the upper Ohio
Valley and the eastern U.S.
