United Kingdom and Ireland - June 24th, 2009

This image of the United Kingdom and Ireland is mostly clear, with only a dense area of clouds over southern Scotland and some patchy clouds hanging over the Republic of Ireland and southern England.

Along the coast, much of the water is tinted a soft greenish color from tan and green sediments spilling out of rivermouths, such as that of the River Severn (below).

However, one area off the coast between Scotland’s Outer Hebrides Archipelago and Northern Ireland (upper left quadrant) is bluish green not cue to sediments, but to a phytoplankton bloom.
