Phytoplankton blooms are still flourishing in the North Sea, creating green and turquoise patches of seawater off the coasts of the United Kingdom and Norway.

One close-up focuses on blooms off the coast of Norway, which have become fainter since the last time they were observed (click here forĀ  previous article).

The other shows a bloom off the coast of the United Kingdom. The blue-green area offshore is due to phytoplankton growth, while the greenish waters hugging the coastline contain sediments.
