Figure 23. MODerate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image on 2 October 2005 of the Northern Patagonian Ice Field, the Southern Patagonian Ice Field, the ice field of the Cordillera Darwin, outlet glaciers from each ice field, and other glaciers. Some of the glacially scoured “Finger Lakes” (south to north, Lago Argentino, Lago Viedma, and Lago San Martín) in the center of the image are “robin’s-egg-blue color”, the result of glacial rock-flour sediment entering the lakes.
