Black Sea – December 25th, 2012

The shores of the Black Sea appear ringed in a cloudy bluish-green color. This is likely due to an influx of sediments carried in by rivers due to heavy rains or snow melt. Phytoplankton growth may also be a factor, although blooms usually occur in the spring and summer and do not remain confined to the edges of the sea.
