Russia – September 3rd, 2012

A phytoplankton bloom was still flourishing in the Barents Sea in early September (click here for previous images). Here, the green and blue, paisley patterns of the bloom can be seen off the coast of the Novaya Zemlya Archipelago (upper right). The bright blue color may be indicative of a coccolithophore bloom.
