Phytoplankton in Barents Sea - August 15th, 2011

This image offers another view of the intense green and blue phytoplankton bloom near Norway that Eosnap has been observing over the last view days. Here, the bloom can be seen hugging the country’s coastline and within large fjords.

Fjords such as Laksefjord (east) and Porsangerfjord (west), separated by the Sværholt Peninsula, have a bluish-green hue. Also visible further east, at the right edge, is the Varangerfjord, the easternmost fjord in Norway, appearing slightly more blue in color. All three fjords are located in the county of Finnmark.
