Argentina - April 17th, 2012

Sediments color two areas of Argentina’s eastern shoreline: visible in the upper right quadrant are tan sediments in the Rio de la Plata Estuary, near Buenos Aires, and visible further down the coast to the southwest are sediments near Bahía Blanca. Also visible near Bahía Blanca, but further offshore, are two small, teal colored phytoplankton blooms. Some sediments and/or phytoplankton can also been seen at the lower left, trailing off the Valdes Peninsula.
