Black Sea – July 7th, 2012

The phytoplankton bloom that has been giving bright blue shades to the waters of the Black Sea over the last month (click here for previous images), appears to be diminishing slightly in intensity, although it is still spread throughout most of the large body of water. Here, the bloom is most concentrated in the southern part of the sea, while the section due west of the Crimean Peninsula shows little activity.
