NOAA Photo Library Image - spac0094

Photographs received from TIROS I on second orbit showed Gulf of St. Lawrence and St. Lawrence River to the left. Gray areas in Gulf were interpreted to be ice by Dr. Harry Wexler of the Weather Bureau. This was first interpretation of sea ice, a major function of satellite imaging today. Monthly Weather Review, May 1960, p. 182.
