Mauritania – March 20th, 2013

Phytoplankton and sediments cause waters of the Atlantic along the coast of Mauritania to have a green hue. Most of the phytoplankton growth is concentrated in the Bay of Arguin, to the north, while sediments can be seen flowing forth from the mouth of the Senegal River, to the south. Some dust can also be seen blowing off the coast of Senegal towards the bottom of the image.
