Image acquisition took place on August 18, 2009 from approximately 8:30 to 9:30 am PST. The tide at Union was approximately -2.0 ft.

Instructions: Click on an image location (black dots) and a small image with both the thermal infrared and visible band images will be displayed. Click on the image to get a larger image. In the thermal infrared image, the coolest water, which appears as bright cyan, is that from groundwater seeps, small streams, and ephemeral creeks flowing across the sun warmed beach and into the warm surface waters of Lynch Cove.
