France – April 20th, 2013

A phytoplankton bloom can be seen in the Bay of Biscay off the west coast of France, near the mouth of the Gironde Estuary. The sediments spilling out of the estuary appear yellowish green, while the phytoplankton bloom is more blue in color, with spiralled patterns due to ocean currents.
