Argentina – August 21st, 2012

Argentina - April 14th, 2012

While sediments frame the Argentine coastline near Bahía Blanca in the upper right quadrant of this image, the green coloring near the right edge and center of the image is caused by the growth of phytoplankton. These tiny microscopic organisms are invisible to the naked eye until they begin to reproduce in great numbers due to high concentrations of nutrients, thus giving the ocean waters a green or blue stain.
