Algal Bloom Along Florida Coast – February 10th, 2009
A large algal bloom blankets the west coast of Florida, USA, from Waccasassa Bay (North) to the Florida Keys (South). The east coast, on the other hand, is relatively algae-free.
When the full image is opened, particularly intense, dark green blooms are visible in the various bays, inlets and rivers along the coastline. To the South, near the Everglades and the Keys, light tan sediments can be seen.
