GOES-16 (GOES-East) True Color Red-Green-Blue (RGB) images created using Geo2Grid (above) revealed the complex motion of ice eddies in the Labrador Sea — within the Labrador Current off the coast of Labrador and Newfoundland, Canada — on 18 April 2020. According to the Canadian Ice Service, this First-year ice was of below-normal concentration.
