Sediment, ground into fine powder by mountain glaciers, causes this burst of color in an otherwise black-and-white scene. The largest contributor of sediment shown in this photo-like image is the Copper River, immediately east of Prince William Sound. The ocean water near the mouth of the river is tan. As the clouds of sediment disperse in the water, they turn blue-green. The Moderate Resolution Imaging. pectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image on Jan. 7, 2007.
