Algal Bloom around Southern Shoreline of Italy
The southern coast of Italy is flanked by an algal bloom with distinctive swirls. The shoreline of the Apulia region (the peninsula above) is mostly clear of algae, while those of the Calabria (bottom) and Basilicata (center) regions are completely surrounded.
The tips of Sicily (bottom left) and Albania (top right) can also be seen. The Sicilian shoreline is relatively clear, whereas part of the Albanian one has an intense bloom.
Some mountains are also visible in the Calabria region. The peninsula in Apulia, on the other hand, seems covered with light brown dots – these are actually various towns and cities.
