Hokkaido, Japan

 (JPG) Hokkaido, Japan (1,774,749 bytes) ( 3,900 x 3,764 )
The north coast of the Island of Hokkaido, Japan lies at the southern end of the Sea of Okhotsk. In this northern sea winter navigation is extremely difficult, and at times impossible, due to ice. Normally completely frozen in winter, this year the Hokkaido coast is partially free of ice. A mass of ice floes clearly defines the pattern of winds and currents that sweep across the water‘«÷s surface. The image was acquired February 11, 2009, covers an area of 58.5 x 56.5 km, and is located near 44.3 degrees north latitude, 143.6 degrees east longitude.
