Caspian Sea – October 21st, 2012

Sediments and phytoplankton growth color the northern part of the Caspian Sea. While those in the central part of the northern lobe appear milky blue in color, those along the upper shoreline appear bright green. The latter are seeping out of the Volga River Delta, visible as a brown and green fanshaped area on the left side of the image.
