Argentina - February 23rd, 2010

A green and blue phytoplankton bloom is visible off the coast of Argentina, southeast of Mar del Plata and east of Bahía Blanca. Some other areas of phytoplankton activity can also be seen below the clouds and southeast of the Valdes Peninsula.

Sediments also line much of the coast above and below Bahia Blanca, continuing up past Mar del Plata. Moving southward, the San Matías Gulf and the Valdes Peninsula, on the other hand, are relatively clear.
