Image Description

On August 23, 2018,  Sentinel – 2 satellite captured the image of Lake Erie which is one of the 20 biggest lakes in the world. It is also the fourth-largest lake among five Great Lakes of North America and the shallowest one in the region. There are 31 islands within lakescape: 13  islands belong to Canada, 18 – to US.

Obtained imagery showing eutrophication processes, growth of “low-oxygen dead zone”, fish and insects migration, temperature variations, therefore assists the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration  in analyzing the impact of shallowness along with anthropogenic activity and water pollution.
