Argentina - March 31st, 2012

A bright green phytoplankton bloom can be seen in the Atlantic Ocean, southeast of Bahía Blanca, Argentina (lower left quadrant). Phytoplankton and sediments can also be observed off the coast of Argentina near Mar del Plata, carried in a diagonal line towards the northeast by currents. North of Mar del Plata is the Rio de la Plata estuary, tan with sediments. Buenos Aires, the capital city of Argentina, can be observed as a grey area by its shores.
