Winter from Satellite Imagery


Geography has one foot firmly lodged in quantifiable sciences, and another that eludes quantification.  A satellite image is loaded with spatial data, and yet this image also has an artistic beauty and I hope every geographer maintains a sense of wonder at the details and beauty of the Earth.

As stated by the folks at Cape Cod weather regarding this image: “Check out the ice and snow in Buzzards Bay, Cape Cod Bay and Nantucket Sound. Look close at the southeast corner of Cape Cod Bay (north side of Yarmouth to Eastham) and eastern side of Buzzards Bay (Bourne and Falmouth shores)…you can see the ice is really packed in thick!”
