Sediment Plume

N 44.55.27 W 75.07.29


Riverside Heights, Ontario, Canada


Sediment carried into the St Lawrence from a flooded creek after a period of extended rain in the fall of 2011. The plume, shaped at its base by currents flowing over the old CNR rail bed, dissipates into the blue green waters of the otherwise crystal clear St Lawrence. The remains of a building can be seen upstream as well a portion of the King’s Highway No 2 offshore.
