Frozen Streams at Emba

First ice appearance in the Caspian Sea this year was associated with extreme downsurge opening significant areas of seabed along the Eastern Coastline. Recent acquisition of perfectly cloudless Landsat-8 shows frozen streams of trapped water that was still streaming away from the coast while getting cought with frost. 10 to 15 nautical miles of open seabed with streams of frozen sea water form a picturesque view from space (see the image on the left).
