Phytoplankton Near Canada - August 18th, 2011

A faint blue phytoplankton bloom hangs threadily in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of the island of Newfoundland, Canada (click here for more on phytoplankton blooms near Canada).

This particular bloom is probably fading rather than beginning, as Eosnap had observed a vigorous bloom in the area six and a half weeks before this image was acquired (click here for previous article).
