False-colour view of the West Arm of Quesnel Lake on 10th January 2017, compiled from images captured by the Operational Land Imager on Landsat 8, and made available by the US Geological Survey through Earth Explorer (http://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/<https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/>). In this rendering, the red display channel represents reflectances in Band 4 (red), the blue channel represents Band 5 (Near Infra-Red), and the green channel represents Band 6 (Short-Wave Infra-Red 1). More information on false-colour images is available from the NASA Earth Observatory pages (http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/FalseColor/).
