[USA] NASA today released hi-resolution images of Lake Erie showing the algal bloom in the lake. The algae is the green color in the lake swirling around the western basin.
The images were captured by the Operational Land Imager on the satellite Landsat 8. Be sure to download the full high-resolution image HERE (warning: This is a large 16mb file. Download on WiFi recommended).
Zoom in on the high resolution image near the islands. You can see boat traffic moving through the algae leaving “tracks” in the bloom.
