Argentina - April 14th, 2012

A small yet bright phytoplankton bloom can be observed off the coast of Argentina near the right edge of this image. Visible to the northwest of the bloom are sediments from the Naposta Stream flowing by the city of Bahía Blanca and into the Atlantic Ocean. Sediments or perhaps phytoplankton can also be observed trailing off the Valdes Peninsula at the lower left.
