Bay of Fundy, Canada
The 100 m false-colour image of 1 January 2017 shows us Bay of Fundy, a bay on the Atlantic coast of North America, also named Baie Française. The Bay of Fundy is known for having the highest tidal range in the world. The highest water level ever recorded in the Bay of Fundy system occurred at the head of the Minas Basin (below) on the night of October 4–5, 1869 during a tropical cyclone named the “Saxby Gale”. The water level of 21.6 meters resulted from the combination of high winds, abnormally low atmospheric pressure, and a spring tide.
