Image Caption: St James Bay, Ontario, Shorelines
Numerous shorelines around Hudson and St. James Bays are distinctive in
winter because of snow cover. The area shown in this Shuttle image is
located in Hannah Bay, in the southern part of St. James Bay. The river
is the Harricanaw River. Shorelines along the bay were created when the
overlying glaciers retreated and the land underneath rebounded causing
the Hudson/St James Bay waters to retreat northward. These ridges are
100 to 200 m in width and heights can reach up to 7 m. The land along
St. James Bay consists mainly of tidal flats and salt marshes.
