Argentina – December 8th, 2012

A phytoplankton bloom that began off the coast of Argentine Patagonia in October can still be seen here, two months later (click here for previous images). The bloom is south of Peninsula Valdes (upper right quadrant). Some dust can also be seen blowing off the coast, just north of the bloom.
